Matariki Tu Rākau Kahikatea Planting
Join Trees for Canterbury, Christchurch City Council and the RSA for the first public planting of what will one day be the largest stand of kahikatea in Ōtautahi/Christchurch since pre-European times. We will be planting over 2000 kahikatea trees in a wetland area that will provide stormwater retention services as well as enhancing urban biodiversity.
- Saturday 10 October, 10am to midday.
- BBQ lunch to finish.
- Gumboots essential, some tools and gloves provided but bring your own if you have them.
- Meet at 103 Philpotts Road, Mairehau to plant in the Cranford Basin.
Matariki Tu Rākau is part of the One Billion Trees programme, helping people to plant living memorials that honour members of their communities. Matariki Tu Rākau was launched on 25 April 2018 to mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War.
Whakatauki e tu kahikatea, hei wakapae uroroa, awhi mai, awhi atu, tatou, tatou e.
Kahikatea stand together; their roots intertwine, strengthening each other, we all help one another and together we will be strong.
