Why keep count
Counting the trees means we can recognise all of the great work that thousands of Kiwis do each year.
It also helps 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:
- pledge your plantings
- register your planting projects
- fund or gift trees
- pledge volunteer time.
See the Trees That Count website for more information.
What are the trees that count?
All trees must be native to New Zealand to assist with restoring and enhancing our environment, our biodiversity as well as impacting climate change.
Here are a few common native tree and shrub species that will meet Trees that Count's criteria for planting:
- northern rata
- red beech
- black beech
For the full list of eligible trees, see the New Zealand Plant Conservation Network website.
