Plant trees in New Zealand

New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. Owing to their remoteness, the islands of New Zealand were the last large habitable lands to be settled by humans. The country's physical isolation has caused biological isolation, resulting in a dynamic evolutionary ecology with examples of distinctive plants and animals as well as populations of widespread species.

New Zealand is home to unique forest ecosystems, including kauri forests, kahikatea swamp forests, pōhutukawa forests and mixed broadleaved forests. These support a diverse flora and fauna that evolved in the almost complete absence of land mammals and are almost entirely made up of native bird species found nowhere else. However, native forests like these have suffered from centuries of logging, forest clearance and invasive species that have reduced them to a fraction of their former range. Your donation will help to plant thousands of trees to restore the island’s indigenous forests and create habitat for wildlife, while stabilising hillsides to prevent erosion and protect local watersheds.


In New Zealand were hard at work restoring the country’s beautiful native forests. Efforts are focused on mobilising support from a coalition of local partners to plant thousands of trees in the Pamoa Forest in the Gisborne District of the North Island. Your support will help get trees in the ground and jump start a brand new forest ecosystem. By planting trees in New Zealand you're helping restore indigenous tree species to previously logged or degraded lands, enhance habitat for native biodiversity and protect local watersheds vital for the water quality of local communities and towns.


Our partners choose trees that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the ecosystem and region. This includes various types of native trees and nursery crop species. Depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored, native trees may include manuka, kahikatea, matae, miro, titoki and other indigenous species.


OneTreePlanted is a non-profit organisation based in Vermont with a mission to make it simple for you to plant trees around the world. Started in 2014, they have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, they now work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help them get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity.
