Getting Involved

Volunteer Days
Volunteer days are held several times a year. These days involve people from a wide range of groups and are essential to the success of wilding tree eradication in the Waimakariri basin. Volunteers go to various locations in the high country and remove trees from tiny seedlings up to two metres tall with hand tools.

If you would like to know when the next volunteer days will be held please fill in the Volunteer Day Formand we will email you the details of the next volunteer day.

Be Aware
Wherever you are you can help stop the spread of wilding trees by:

  • Planting trees that do not produce wildings;
  • Controlling wilding conifers on land that you own or occupy;
  • Supporting others in their wilding conifer control efforts;  or
  • Joining a community group involved in wilding conifer control.
