In 2017 over 2000 plants were put into the ground

This was a big season for our Trust. The usual number of plants to go in each year tends to average around 1000. The Eastern Track area was the target planting area for 2017 and was completed. The reason for the higher number was that we had prepared Michaels area in the south expecting to plant in 2018 but due to Hamilton City Council having a planting allocation for Mangaiti Park that was not ready for planting, the plants were diverted to our prepared area. This worked in very well even though it put a bit of pressure on the volunteers.

For the second year we had Rototuna Primary School doing a planting of over 100 plants.
