Planting guides


Use our guides to help you select and plant native trees and shrubs that suit your local area and climate

Native trees and shrubs can have many benefits, including aesthetical, ecological and economical. They aid farming operations, provide food and shelter for native birds, reduce erosion and much more.

The Waikato region has through time lost many of its native trees and shrubs, and this has in turn affected our wildlife. By planting local trees and shrubs you can, among many things, increase the value of your land, provide winter food for tui, kereru and bellbirds, and preserve and rebuild the natural character of your local landscape.
