How one man's vision (Sir Stephen Tindall) for a native tree campaign became a reality

Climate change and reducing New Zealand’s carbon emissions is a hot topic.

Trees That Count is a group making a difference. 

Encompassing the vision of Sir Stephen Tindall and with catalytic investment funding from The Tindall Foundation, the organisation counts the number of native trees being planted nationally, whilst also encouraging and enabling more plantings through its online marketplace, which allows individuals, businesses and families to fund or gift native trees. These ‘funded’ trees are matched with planters throughout the country. 

Trees That Count’s goal is to see 200 million additional natives planted in the next 10 years. Over 23 million have been counted to date. It also wants to create a culture where planting or gifting native trees becomes the Kiwi ‘thing to do’ to celebrate or commemorate occasions.

This week, the Prime Minister gifted 10 native trees to celebrate the new royal baby via Trees That Count. ‘

Tanya is responsible for extending the organisation's reach, expertise and support in to regions throughout New Zealand via a network of Regional Advisors spanning Northland to Otago. She works with the team of Advisors, helps manage relationships with nurseries, planting partners and planting projects as needed.
