New Zealanders committed to planting 15,015 native trees for Arbor Day on 5 June, the most on record for tree planting in New Zealand on a given day!
Native planting efforts were recorded up the down the country, bringing people together from a range of cultures, both young and old. It is hugely encouraging to see what a great effort the New Zealand public put in on Arbor Day. It really brings home how much we as a nation value nature and shows our willingness to pitch in and work together for a worthy cause. We have now set the bar so that we can try to supersede that for future Arbor Day plantings!
Just because Arbor Day is finished it doesn’t mean people can’t still plant, so get involved and help us reach our target for 2017. Pledge to plant a tree, register a planting project or gift or donate a native tree today!
