Native trees have seen it all. See why we love them.

We’re bringing together business, community and everyday Kiwis to plant 200 million native trees.

Join the Trees That Count community

We're counting the native trees planted throughout New Zealand, and helping Kiwis to plant more. Together, we can all make an impact on climate change and improve our environment.

Trees That Count is New Zealand's community marketplace to connect tree funders and planters

How does our marketplace work?

When people donate, we match their funded trees with planters to get more natives into the ground.

There are currently native trees available to planters.
