Financial assistance

If you are looking for help with the cost of native restoration planting, there are several options currently available:

Applying to Te Ara Kākāriki for funding

Every year we seek applications from landowners and community groups who would like our assistance with planting native seedlings on their property. Applications open in April and are then assessed by Te Ara Kākāriki in June, with successful applicants planting the following year. 

To apply to Te Ara Kākāriki for assistance see our Plant Your Property page for more information by clicking the below button. 

Please note we only fund projects where Te Ara Kākāriki will be involved in the planning process.

Selwyn Natural Environment Fund

Apply for a grant from the Selwyn Natural Environment Fund which has been set up by Selwyn District Council.

Trees that count

Apply for trees to plant through Trees That Count and register previously planted trees as well.
