What we do

Te Tapu o Tāne is more than just a native tree and plant nursery. This is the engine room, built as a response by Mana Whenua to stand up and face climate change head-on.

Results-driven, and solutions-orientated, we are here to deliver all your catchment needs – reforestation services, commercial landscaping, project management and much more!

Our team provide catchment rehabilitation services guided by Te Ao Māori knowledge. We are involved in landscape-scale projects and it’s all about bringing the community along with us. To us, success means creating strong and lasting relationships between the community and te taiao (the land) through our community outreach & planting events, rangatahi programmes and collaborations with passionate organisations.

Toitu te marae o Tāne, toitu te marae o Tangaroa, toitu te Iwi

Care for the land and the water and the people will be sustained.

A counting guide to the success of our kaimahi (staff) and community working together for the betterment of Papatūānuku. As these numbers grow, so will the health and wellbeing of the people and wildlife that rely on them!

Mauri ora!
