PROTECT NEW ZEALAND'S URBAN TREES

Reason for signing

  • Currently only mature & significant trees fit the criteria for nomination for protection. If we don’t protect younger trees there won’t be any older significant trees to replace the mature ones that die. One large tree can absorb 150kgs of carbon dioxide per year, enhance mental & physical well being provide habitat for birds and other species and provide bio diversity as well as provide amenity value. It’s a no brainer to provide far greater protection asap
