Carbon Emissions

The Problem

Atmospheric Carbon has skyrocketed to 420 parts per million. Increased CO2 leads to higher global temperatures and extreme weather events.

The Consequences

If humans do not drastically reduce CO2 levels, we face increased flooding, wildfires and possibly an extinction event.

The Solution

The only proven and efficient method of capturing carbon is tree planting.

Loss of Biodiversity

The Problem

Conversion of native forest to farmland is putting biodiversity under extreme threat.

The Consequences

Indigenous flora and fauna are continuing to be severely depleted.

The Solution

To restore native wildlife, we must plant native trees.

Our Solution

Knobcone-Monterey Cross

Rapid Carbon Capture

By planting exotic trees we can capture carbon at a rate 5x faster than native trees over the first 30 years.

Recommended

Our chosen exotic, the Knobcone-Monterey Cross, has been recommended by the NZ Government.

Fit For Purpose

Exotic trees have a life span of around 150 years, after which time they will be naturally replaced by native forest.

Non-Invasive

Our exotics do not spread their seed, and promote low to medium levels of biodiversity and soil control.

Silver Beech/Tawhai

Biodiversity

Native trees promote indigenous flora and fauna, such as birdlife, insects, ferns and flowering plants.

Interplanting Benefits

Natives trees are ordinarily slow-growing and difficult/expensive to establish. However, the exotic species acts as a nurse, and aids growth.

Full Native Forest

In 150-200 years, we expect our forests will convert to 100% native forest and bush, living for thousands of years.
