There's a whole lot of tree planting going on

Tread Softly Wine has doubled its commitment in support of the restoration of deforested Australian bushland by now planting one native Australian tree for every six bottles of wine sold. 

Tread Softly has already planted more than 500,000 native trees for a key environmental project - as marked by a new plaque (above) - and has celebrated the milestone achievement with the launch of Tread Softly NV Blanc de Blancs ($16), made from 100% chardonnay.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to contribute in such a significant way to help reduce the harmful effects on the environment caused by the increases in greenhouse gas emissions," says Ross Marshall, general manager of Fourth Wave Wine.

"Through the immense support of our retail partners and Tread Softly Wine lovers, we are now planning to grow an entire ‘Tread Softly Forest’, with an ambition to plant 1 million trees.” 

In recognition of Tread Softly’s contribution, Carbon Neutral has designated 810 hectares of cleared and over-cultivated land for the Tread Softly Forest. 

This former farming property is suffering from severe land degradation and hasn’t been farmed for years. It is in much-need of restoration via the planting of a diverse range of native plant species local to the area.

“Tread Softly Wine has made an outstanding contribution to the planet by planting 500,000 trees in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor [in Western Australia]," says Ray Wilson, CEO of Carbon Neutral. 

"The Tread Softly forest has restored vital habitat for hundreds of wildlife species and helped restore a precious ecosystem comprised of unique biodiversity. The mixed species native trees and shrubs that they’ve planted will also capture carbon from the atmosphere as they grow, clean the air, and improve soil and water quality. 

"Their ongoing commitment to restore the area’s woodland to what it once reflects genuine action to make a real positive difference to our environment.”

Tread Softly Wine is a naturally lighter-in-style range of wines grown and made with modern vineyard and water management techniques to minimise environmental impact. 

Tread Softly Wine Blanc de Blancs is available from major liquor retailers nationally. For further information visit:
