One million native trees planted with Trees That Count

29 Apr 2022

Trees That Count has officially planted one million native trees across Aotearoa. The organisation provides a place for all New Zealanders to fund or gift native trees. Resene and Resene Eco.Decorators are proud to support the cause, and have contributed more than 7000 trees across the country, helping to remove about 1,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Collectively, donators to Trees That Count have now given an incredible one million native trees for native restoration projects in every corner of Aotearoa. That means more homes for native birds, over 220,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere, better quality soil and land, and increased support for ecosystems.

The Trees That Count website works by matching donations with planters throughout the country who are restoring and growing precious wildlife corridors or pockets of native forest, turning small projects into mighty ones.

Projects Resene has supported with donated trees include the Bird Wood Wetlands Restoration Project, Clean Streams Karamea, Ngā Rakau O Onepoto/Trees for Taylor's Mistake, Waipoua Forest Trust and Whaia Titirangi Restoration Project.

Native trees planted through charity Trees That Count.

Trees that Count first set up its online marketplace six years ago, which allows both individuals and businesses to donate $10 to gift a native tree. Get involved in the project and find out more:
