About the Program
Introducing our new initiative, the Thermotree of Life Program. With every order, Thermotek Windows will plant a tree on your behalf. You will receive a certificate of your personalised Thermotree.
How does the Program work?
- Acting as natural water pumps to reduce dryland soil salinity.
- These green pockets reduce erosion from wind and water.
- Recycle nutrients for agriculture.
- Support habitats for wildlife.
There is no WiFi in the forest, but I promise you will find a better connection.
“Be like a tree. Stay grounded. Connect with your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break.
Enjoy your unique natural beauty. Keep growing.” - Joanne Raptis
Where will your Thermotree be planted?
The plantings are in the northern wheat belt region of Southwest Australia. This is one of only 35 global biodiversity hotspots. They have a high number of plant and animal species found nowhere else in the world. These plants, animals and ecosystems are at extreme risk of destruction. The Yarra Yarra was once vibrant with expansive woodlands of gum trees. But from the early 1900s Europeans have cleared more than 97% of the vegetation so they could farm. Now, parts of the landscape are not suitable for traditional agriculture.
