West Australian mental health initiative the Blue Tree Project has just reached a huge milestone – planting its 1000th tree since beginning as a grassroots movement in 2019.

The Perth-based charity aims to spark conversations about mental health, with each iconic blue tree acting as a reminder to connect and raise awareness.

While every single continent except Antarctica now has its own blue tree, WA remains the blue tree epicentre of the world, with 60% of Australia’s registered trees situated within the state.

Since 2019, the charity has expanded their operations to also include community events and activations, and more recently, mental health training and awareness sessions – particularly in regional areas.

“Our goal is to foster supportive communities and empower individuals to play an active role in mental health awareness and support,” said Kendall Whyte, CEO and founder of the Blue Tree Project.

“By delivering these courses in regional Western Australia, we aim to bridge the gap in mental health services and create a network of trained individuals who can positively impact the well-being of their communities.”

Coinciding with this achievement, the charity has moved into a new office space in West Perth, appropriately named The Tree House.
