Why keep count
Counting the trees means we can recognise all of the great work that thousands of Kiwis do each year.
It could also help to measure the collective impact we 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:
- Enter your tree count data
- Register your planting projects
- Fund or gift trees
- Pledge volunteer time or land
You can get involved as an individual, family, business or organisation.
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 more information of the types of trees that can be counted, see the guide: What kinds of trees count? (PDF, 321KB).
