PLANT ON THIS LAND

& BECOME A

PATRON FOR CLIMATE

This project is NOT FOR PROFIT

I offer space on my land to plant YOUR trees.

Please, know that trees will be planted in autumn & winter (May-September in New Zealand) when seeds and seedlings are available and the ground is ready. About 10% of planted trees is regularly lost for natural causes. Thank you.

Your trees will be named and you will be able to track them here and follow their growth. You can dedicate trees or leave a poem message to the world that we will post on the public map.

You can either buy a bulk of trees, and we will choose the species, or you can purchase specific species or types by tree.

Planting has started on May 25th, 2020....after 6 months of heavy-duty weeding:

KNOW YOUR TREES

 
  • KAURI

    Agathis australis

    Kauri are among the world's mightiest trees, growing to over 50 m tall, with trunk girths up to 16 m, and living for over 2,000 years. They covered much of the top half of the North Island when the first people arrived around 1000 years ago. Between 1871 and 1882 some 47,407 tons of recent and fossilized gum was removed from the soil and it was estimated that it would take the forest growth of 10,000 years to replace it. The great Kauri forests of old were decimated almost to the point of extinction. They are now protected but affected by a fast-spreading killing fungal disease.

  • KAWAKA

    Libocedrus plumosa

    This is a conifer endemic to New Zealand, occurring on the North Island in lowland and hill forest. It is classed as at risk as it needs disturbed areas to regenerate. 
    It grows from sea level up to 600 m.a.s.l in temperate rainforests. This evergreen coniferous tree grows to 25 m tall, with a trunk up to 1.2m in diameter. 
    The bark tears off in long thin strips which often spiral gradually around the trunk, giving the tree a twisted appearance. In the past, it was selectively milled to near extinction for its red wood which was used for house shingles and in cabinet making.

  • TOTARA

    Podocarpus totara

    Tōtara grow up to 30 metres tall, with massive trunks. They were used by the Māori for canoes and carving. It has thick stringy bark and its leaves are a very dark green-brownish colour and are 13-25 mm long, linear and sharp pointed.

  • KAHIKATEA

    Dacrycarpus dacrydioides

    The kahikatea or white pine is New Zealand’s tallest native tree reaching up to 60 metres high. Black seeds, produced in autumn at the end of a succulent red stem, are popular with wood pigeon (kūkupa or kererū), kākā and tūī. Kahikatea is one of the most reduced forest types in New Zealand, once dominating in lowland swamp areas.

  • MIRO

    Prumnopytis ferrugineus

    Growing up to 25 metres high, the miro bears pinkish purple fruit especially in autumn to early winter, which is a favourite food of kākā and wood pigeons.

  • PURIRI

    Vitex lucens

    The Puriri tree can grow up to 20 m tall, with a trunk commonly up to 1.5 m in diameter, frequently thicker, and a broad spreading crown. The thin bark is usually smooth and light brown in color, but can also be very flaky. Puriri is one of the few native trees with large colorful flowers. Puriri was actively and selectively logged in the past to provide timber for a wide range of end uses.

  • RIMU

    Dacrydium cupressinum

    Able to reach up to 50 metres in height, the rimu is well known for its strong, durable timber often used in furniture, although very little is milled these days.

  • POHUTUKAWA

    Metrocideros excelsa

    Pōhutukawa is New Zealand's Christmas tree, and holds a prominent place in Maori mythology. The tree grows up to 20m in height, with a dome-like spreading form. Its natural range is the coastal regions of the North Island of New Zealand. The Pohutukawa flowers from November to January with a peak in mid to late December with brilliant crimson flowers covering the tree, hence the nickname New Zealand Christmas Tree.

  • RATA

    Metrosideros robusta

    Rātā trees have glossy dark green leaves and trunks that are often gnarled and twisted. However they are best known for their brilliant red flowers that appear in profusion from November to January, depending on location, and can be seen from some distance away. Northern rātā is one of New Zealand's tallest flowering trees. It usually begins life as an epiphyte (or plant perched on a host tree) high in the forest canopy. Its roots grow down to the ground, finally enclosing the host tree and producing a huge tree up to 25 m high with a trunk of 2.5 m through.

  • KOWHAI

    Sophora microphylla

    The kōwhai is one of the best known native trees in New Zealand and it’s our unofficial national flower.

    They are best known for their brilliant yellow flowers that appear in profusion in Spring and stand out among the forest greenery

    They grow from a seed in the ground to become a tree up to 25 m high.
