Our Story

Resilience in Action

A brief history

On June 9th 2021, a big storm hit the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria especially hard. Some 25,000 trees fell in the region, causing power outages, limited connectivity and road blockages, with many people losing their homes, including members of the Rescue Logs committee.

Rescue Logs was formed to salvage and reuse the trees that Mother Nature felled, creating projects that help in the healing process and build resilience.
