Trees for Survival is the only environmental programme currently supported by the Rotary Clubs of New Zealand. The project began in 1991, and is administered by a charitable trust that promotes the growing and planting of native trees by school children. The hope is that, by encouraging organisations to sponsor and support primary and intermediary students tend and plant out tree seedlings, communities can come together to help protect NZ’s beautiful eco-system.

Rotary Club of Browns Bay are long-time supporters of this initiative, and assist pupils at Pinehill School every August. For more information about Trees for Survival, visit
