Paint it green for World Environment Day 2021
1-30 June 2021

We’re growing a brighter future with Trees That Count, an environmental charity on a mission to plant millions more native trees throughout New Zealand. Trees That Count runs the country’s only marketplace which provides a place for anyone to fund or gift native trees.

We're growing a brighter future with Trees That Count, an environmental charity on a mission to plant millions more native trees throughout New Zealand. Trees That Count runs the country's only marketplace which provides a place for anyone to fund or gift native trees.

This support is matched with planters throughout the country who are restoring, and growing, precious wildlife corridors or pockets of native forest, turning small projects into mighty ones. For more information, visit

Thanks to your help last year Resene supported six planters with trees for their projects, including:

Waiheke Resources Trust

With the Waiheke community and volunteer groups we are working towards restoring 4 significant wetland habitats and surrounding environments on Waiheke Island – Te Matuku, Te Whau, Rangihoua & Matiatia Headland.

Puke Kopipi Restoration Group

Puke Kopipi is an important landscape feature for the Ngunguru/ Tutukaka Coast Community. It sits behind the local Sports Complex and has a rough Walkway to the top with awesome views over Ngunguru Estuary and Sandspit to Bream Head, and to islands to the south.

Pines were removed in 2011 and a community restoration kaupapa begun to protect the natural, cultural and historic values. Volunteers are removing pest plants, restoring native plantings, arresting erosion and eventually bringing back the birds and creating an attractive walkway - a peaceful place to walk and observe, a place of wairua. Puke Kopipi is a positive wonderful project and we would not be able to achieve our goals of restoration without the support of our community and organisations.

Te Kakano Aotearoa Trust

Te Kākano Aotearoa Trust is a Wanaka community-based native plant nursery that specialises in propagating plants of local origin and uses these plants for localised native habitat restoration. We work with local community groups, schools, organisations & businesses in the effort to promote hands-on community land care.

Te Kakano has been involved in habitat restoration in the Upper Clutha area for more than 10 years now. We are proud of what we have achieved and are excited about where we are going.

Whangara Farms

Whangara Farms is a partnership made up of three Māori Incorporations, Whangara B5, Pakarae & Tapuwae Whitiwhiti. The total farming area is 8,500ha and runs approx. 80,000 stock units of sheep & beef.

Whangara Farms is retiring an area of approximately 5ha which contains a wetland, excluding stock, and planting it in native species. The wetland is opposite the Whangara Primary School and Kindy so will be an excellent environment for them to learn about our precious wetlands. We would like to restore the wetland to its original habitat and native species. There are so few wetlands left so this is an important planting project and will provide significant habitat for our native species.
