Growing & Greening New Zealand with you
Kauri Park is a passionate and vital partner for ‘greening’ projects across New Zealand from major civil projects, residential and commercial development plantings, wetland restoration, landscaping and farmland revegetation.
We are one of the country’s most experienced growers and wholesalers of native plants, complemented by new, exclusive varieties and superior selections for Manuka forestry plantations.
Farmers across New Zealand are being encouraged to revegetate riparian areas and fence off waterways to improve water quality and reduce run-off. The activities aim to reduce nutrient, sediment and bacteria build-up in waterways and wetlands and involve restricting livestock movements and planting native, low-growing, flood tolerant species. The benefits are three-fold with the plantings filtering surface run-off while providing wildlife corridors and limiting the growth of weeds.
Imagine living in New Zealand with no large kauri trees left alive in our forests. The kauri is a New Zealand national icon and a taonga (treasure) of great significance to Maori. An entire ecosystem depends on this species, as do local forests and park users and tourists alike.
