Trees That Count

Trees That Count is a national initiative to mobilise New Zealanders to plant millions more native trees to mitigate climate change. The project is being managed by Project Crimson, in collaboration with The Tindall Foundation, Pure Advantage and DOC.

In 2017 we want to see one tree planted for every New Zealander, that’s 4.7 million trees.  Trees That Count is providing a solution to get a national count of native tree planting activity in New Zealand. But it’s about planting trees that count – for climate change, for biodiversity and for restoring and enhancing our environment. Native trees.

Counting the trees means we can recognise all of the great work that thousands of Kiwis do each year anyway, but also measure the impact we could collectively have on climate change.  Every Kiwi can play their part in slowing down climate change. Join the movement to plant and look after millions more trees for generations to come.

There are heaps of ways to get involved, you can pledge your plantings, register your planting projects, fund or gift trees or pledge volunteer time.
