TreeTime’s mission is two-pronged; to reduce atmospheric carbon levels and prevent further increase in global temperatures due to anthropogenic climate change, and to promote and restore the flora and fauna unique to New Zealand. These are well-established environmental goals that are beneficial to all living species in this country and on this planet.
While both of the above issues are of paramount importance, TreeTime recognises that reducing and mitigating carbon emissions to stem the increase in global temperatures is a priority. The sooner we can adequately tackle this issue, the greater chance we have of being successful. However, it is possible to simultaneously work to achieving both of these outcomes. This reality is reflected in our planting plan, detailed below.
