Overview

Join us on a one-day Te Urewera Rainforest Tree Planting Trek. On this trekking & tree planting experience, you will encounter a pristine indigenous forest and help us regenerate bare areas by planting native indigenous trees in spots once denuded by native logging.

Accompanying you on this trek, your local Maori guide will pick you up in Murupara at the DOC Office (Department of Conservation) where your day begins. Then spend the morning walking under the towering canopy of the majestic Whirinaki forest, listening to Maori legends and stories, and learning how the trees play an important part in Maori creation myths.

Following a delightful home-cooked lunch, commence planting native New Zealand trees like the rimu, matai, and totara as well as native beech that will be fully mature trees in 1,000 years and become part of the podocarp & beech forests that largely make up the forests of the Urewera region.

Participating in the restoration of this unique landscape makes you an honorary guardian of the forest, or ‘Kaitiaki Tautoko.’ As a contribution to the ongoing forest restoration and management, we also donate NZ$25 to the Te Urewera Rainforest Restoration Trust on behalf of every visitor taking part in this experience. In addition, your participation also helps offset your carbon footprint.

This trek operates year-round, with scheduled dates from November to March.
