Do something Tree-warding is a nationwide drive to encourage every Kiwi to donate a native tree that will be planted near a waterway with Trees That Count.
As part of The Vision is Clear campaign, we are encouraging Kiwis to think about how they can protect our waterways and providing opportunities to make it easy to get involved.
Do Something Tree-warding is an easy way for anyone to make a difference, simply by donating a native tree.
100% of the donations made are passed on to conservation charity Trees That Count and will result in a real native tree in the ground; planted in a community project to benefit New Zealand's precious waterways.
Why? Because native trees really are Tree-warding: They help reduce sediment and filter out nutrients before they reach waterways, prevent soil erosion, reduce greenhouse gases, and provide shade and habitats for birds, fish and insects – all adding up to healthier waterways.
How it works
1. Donate a tree
Head to GrabOne and donate a native tree (or more!) to Trees That Count to help our waterways – just $10 each.
2. Your tree gets allocated to a planting project
100% of your donation is passed on to Trees That Count and matched with a community planting project to benefit a waterway. Your tree will hit the ground in the 2020 planting season
3. We'll keep you up to date
Trees That Count will let you know where your tree (or trees) will be planted. You can see the number of trees donated and planting projects supported here, and like The Vision is Clear on Facebook or follow us on Instagram for more updates. Help spread the word using the hashtag #thevisionisclear.
Every tree planted makes a difference, so do something Tree-warding today!
