It enriches our local environment in so many ways. Cleans our air, strengthens our land and provides shelter and food for many forms of life.
Every dollar you spend helps us buy more trees to plant.
So whether you're buying a new or used vehicle, buying parts and accessories, or just getting your vehicle serviced or repaired, you're helping turn back the effects of the modern world on our environment.
We're planting where it's needed most.
Working with Tauranga City Council we'll be holding regular Planting Days around Tauranga. The Parks and Environment department will decide where and what trees will be most beneficial, and they'll oversee on the day to make sure we do it right!
Would you like to dig a few holes with us?
Many of our staff will be volunteering, but we welcome anyone who would like to come along and dig a few holes with us. All you'll need is gumboots and a spade. And if you don't have a spade we can probably sort one for you. Sign up below and we'll email you information about when and where the next Planting Day will be.
Join us on our journey towards a better local Environment.

Update 25th July 2019 - First Planting Day Announced
We're very proud to announce that our ForesTree Project's first planting day will be helping Tauranga City Council with their development of K Valley.
Kopurererua Valley Reserve, or K Valley, runs alongside Takitimu Drive (the Toll Road section), and is one of Tauranga’s largest reserves. It has a popular cycleway, and provides a variety of different experiences, from farmland to native bush land and ponds.
We've funded and will be planting 100-200 Kahikatea (White Pine) in the valley on 7th September 2019. Kahikatea grow to heights of over 30 metres and are the tallest of New Zealand's forest trees.
This project is part of the Council's plan to reclaim the low-lying wetlands in the reserve.
