Please tell us and everyone else about your organisation and its purpose

Since 1991, Trees for Survival’s educational programme has been working with schools across New Zealand to protect the environment.

We have planted almost two million native trees across the country to improve water quality, reduce erosion, increase biodiversity and offset carbon emissions, while fostering children to have an environmental understanding as well as bringing whānau and the wider community together.

The programme teaches the fundamental principles of ecology, horticulture and environmental restoration by both practical application and classroom studies. In 2019, Trees for Survival schools planted over 90,000 trees with more than 4,000 school students involved at planting days.
