An amazing effort on this planting day! What a way to celebrate International Climate Change Day, together with 71 amazing volunteers we managed to get approximately 3,100 trees in the ground at Puhinui Reserve. This was one of many public tree plantings Sustainable Coastlines are running for Vector as part of their Urban Forest, which is aiming to plant 26,000 trees this winter.
Planting trees helps create cleaner streams and creates awesome habitat areas for so many species to flourish. The trees of choice for this planting were harakeke (flax), mānuka, kahikatea, rautahi and giant umbrella sedge.
Thank you to everyone who came along! We look forward to seeing you at the next planting!
