Since its launch in late 2016, Trees That Count has had more than 11 million native trees added to its live tree count, and helped to increase the work of community planting groups with an additional 100,000 native trees.
2018 is set to be even more excited for this Tindall Foundation funded project. Over the coming weeks, Trees That Count is launching New Zealand’s only community marketplace connecting native tree planters with funders. This is the first step on a journey to enable Kiwi businesses to invest into a sustainability programme through some pretty clever technology, and to enable conservation groups to be able to do more work by applying for free trees from Trees That Count. The marketplace is launching with over 20,000 native trees to give away to groups throughout New Zealand, funded primarily by corporates and also through the public generosity of Kiwis over Christmas.
Keep a look out for more information on Marketplace in the next two weeks.
