Celebrating Arbor Day by expanding forest at the heart of Wellington

Mayor Justin Lester supports partners CVNZ and RCW in restoring nature to the city

As an extension of our Forest at the Heart of Wellington and Trees of Remembrance projects, Wellington is about to embark on its largest community-led tree-planting programme with a $490,000 boost from the Government’s One Billion Trees Programme.
Volunteers will plant at least 45,000 natives in the Mt Victoria Town Belt over three years, courtesy of the Matariki Tu Rākau initiative, which funds plantings to recognise the men and women who have served in the New Zealand Defence Force.

Recreating a native forest in the heart of the city, Conservation Volunteers New Zealand (CVNZ) is managing the project in partnership with Rotary Club of Wellington (RCW) and Wellington City Council (WCC).
