Trees That Count aims to create a national movement to plant millions of native trees to mitigate climate change. We're managed by the Project Crimson Trust in partnership with the Tindall Foundation.
An educational community experience through native planting
Aiga Energy, through Trees That Count’s marketplace, has received 50 trees to pursue their planting project. Using funding received into our marketplace from Z Energy, Aiga now have the opportunity to undertake urban restoration.
Their intention is to plant natives along the parameter of Brown Street in South Auckland. Aiga hope this will detract people from abandoning rubbish and polluting the area, as this roadside currently serves as a dumping zone for local residents waste.
This planting project will do more than increase the native tree count, it will also be an educational experience. Aiga Energy hope it will teach those involved and in the community to learn to respect the environment.
This project also highlights that there is room for natives in all landscapes around New Zealand, not just in rural settings.
