Restoring the environment

Having planted 1.69 million trees at the end of January, we’re well on the way to our goal of planting two million native plants in Wellington by 2025. Planting toward this goal started slowly in 1992 and has ramped up in recent years.

In 2019/20, we will continue our planting programme and provide another 45,000 eco-sourced native plants to community groups. We’re also working with other organisations on growing a number of threatened native plant species, supported by our new Plant Conservation Lab at Otari-Wilton’s Bush.
