For over 20 years Project Crimson has been working with communities around New Zealand to renew and restore our precious ecosystems, with a particular focus on our iconic pohutukawa and rata trees. All New Zealanders can be part of our work by joining our planting days, making a donation to the Trust or buying our products.
It’s a popular image of the New Zealand summer, when pohutukawa and rata are bursting with blossom. Yet by 1990 it was clear that these trees could become wiped out in some parts of the country. Project Crimson was established to fight for their survival. Since then we have planted hundreds of thousands of trees, and our work continues.
