It's ours. But one day it'll be theirs.

Trees That Count is a programme uniting Kiwis to help restore our environment and make a difference to climate change in New Zealand by planting native trees. Their aim is to see millions more native trees planted in New Zealand - to restore our environment but also to make an impact on climate change, and Kiwibank is joining their ambitious mission.

Watch the video below to see how we can make sure future generations of Kiwis will be able to enjoy our forests the way they should be.

Native tree plantings you can be a part of

With your help, our friends at Trees That Count are restoring natural habitats with native trees at Quail Island in Lyttelton Harbour and Kani Rangi Park at Murupara. These restorations create vital bio-diversity and a home for beautiful native birds like kererū, korimako and even the endangered kororā.

Murupara’s Kani Rangi Park

Kani Rangi Park is a native podocarp/hardwood forest and restoring it is no easy feat. The park had degenerated due to the corporatisation of forestry in the early 80s — but with the help of local communities and our partnership with Trees That Count, things are getting done faster.

Quail Island

Quail Island was known for its 24ha of neglected farmland. In 1997, the Quail Island Ecological Restoration Trust was established to restore the island to its former glory. Since then, the island has become a great example of what restoring a native forest can do for an ecosystem.
