Vector and Sustainable Coastlines invite you, your school or business to join us on Sunday, 23 September for a free day of tree planting on the banks of the Puhinui Stream. Puhinui Reserve has played an important role in Auckland Council’s Million Trees project this year.

Vector’s Urban Forest aims to plant over 10,000 native seedlings a year, replacing every tree removed from the network for safety reasons with two new ones in areas where they contribute to the environment and the local community.

This public planting day is open to all, so bring your family and all your mates!

Planting native trees, shrubs and grasses on the banks of waterways helps the environment in a number of ways. Plants remove sediment and excess nutrients, they provide shelter, shade and habitat to birds and stream organisms and they help to capture carbon dioxide, which contributes in the ongoing battle against climate change.

To take part in this event, please fill in the form below on behalf of your group and one of our team from Sustainable Coastlines will be in touch. We’ll be meeting from 10.00am at the end of Price Rd in Wiri and look for our blue Sustainable Coastlines flags and friendly helpers in high-vis gear. We’ll be starting from 10.00am and finishing up around 4:00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but at lunch, we’ll all come together for a tasty feed and refreshment.
