Helping to save the environment - planting trees
"With good planning and design, trees create a pleasant, diverse and interesting place in which to live and work.
Trees have the power to inspire awe and wonder. For generations they have been used to beautify the landscape.
Trees have many attributes. Plantings for timber, livestock shelter, shade, fodder, soil conservation and biodiversity can deliver significant benefits. Each adds capital value to your farm as well as character and visual appeal."
The New Zealand climate offers many tree choices. There’s no real limit to what you can achieve once you get started."
