MOTT About Them

The Men of the Trees (MOTT) is a non-profit, non-political international society dedicated in fostering the planting, maintenance and protection of trees.MOTT

The Queensland Society was formed in 1980 and is based in Brisbane. Its membership is supported by a management committee, voluntary tree planters and other supporters drawn from a broad community base. We believe in planting the right trees, in the right places, for the right reasons.

What Do They Do

The Society recognises that deforestation has made a major impact on the physical and visual environment within the state and that in some regions tree planting is required to:

  • Stabilise eroding soil profiles
  • Mitigate climatic extremes
  • Provide flora and fauna habitat
  • Provide timber and other products
  • Beautify the environment

The Men of the Trees plant trees in parks as well as in degraded urban and rural areas. The Society also encourages the development of systems for tree planting to suit specific needs. The scope of the Society’s tree planting activities is limited only by the level of membership and the necessary funding to implement projects.

The Society assists service organisations, schools, clubs, rural groups, local Governments and individuals in achieving a better understanding of the role of trees in the environment and in organising the planting and maintenance of projects.
