Kiwis are being challenged to plant 4.7 native trees

A community planting in Halswell Quarry was one of many New Zealand Arbor Day projects.

Kiwis have been asked to plant one native tree each this year.

We've beaten Trees That Count's Arbor Day goal of planting 10,000 trees, with organisers confident we are well on track.
