Daintree Rainforest Plant Nursery
Rainforest Rescue’s plant nursery propagates and grows all the rainforest trees for our Daintree lowland revegetation projects. Rainforest saplings are used for our Plant a Rainforest Project and to support the efforts of other landholders in the Daintree.
All of the seeds collected are from the Daintree Lowland Rainforest between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation and the new trees are replanted back into the area. With the support of a committed group of volunteers the Nursery produces on average 20,000 plants per year.
The Nursery is located in the Daintree National Park on land owned by the Queensland Department of Environment and Natural Resources. It is managed by Rainforest Rescue’s Nursery Manager who is responsible for seed collection, species selection, propagation and growing of trees required for our revegetation projects.
If you wish to access trees for revegetation projects or if you have any other enquiries please email us.
Prior to 2010 the Nursery was managed for many years by the Daintree Cassowary Care Group – a volunteer-managed community organisation. We appreciate their trust in Rainforest Rescue to continue their good works and for all the nursery infrastructure and materials they have bequethed our organisation. Thank you!
