One Tree Planted

New Zealand is home to unique forest ecosystems, including kauri forests, kahikatea swamp forests, pōhutukawa forests and mixed broadleaved forests. These support a diverse flora and fauna that evolved in the almost complete absence of land mammals and are almost entirely made up of native bird species found nowhere else. However, native forests like these have suffered from centuries of logging, forest clearance and invasive species that have reduced them to a fraction of their former range. Your donation will help to plant thousands of trees to restore the island’s indigenous forests and create habitat for wildlife, while stabilizing hillsides to prevent erosion and protect local watersheds.

Native Plants

Over 80% of New Zealand was once blanketed in native forests of tall evergreen and hardwood trees such as kauri, rata, rimu and podocarpus species. Today, indigenous forests cover around 25% of New Zealand, often in patches and fragments outside of protected areas. Where these forest ecosystems still exist intact they support unique flora and fauna communities, including many endemic bird species such as kererū wood pigeons, kākā parrots, fantails and tui.


Logging and land clearance have taken their toll on much of New Zealand’s native forests and the biodiversity found in them. This has had the greatest impact on lowland forests, significantly reducing some forest types. Today the greatest threats to New Zealand’s indigenous forests come from damage caused by the spread of invasive species, the fragmentation of forest habitats, and the lack of intact forest buffers between them.


Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity.
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!

Team McGhie are doing their part

Every time a property owner requests an appraisal of their property, Team McGhie will gift them a tree to plant. The location of those trees will be recorded and we will follow up on progress over the years.

We are looking to get involved with businesses and schools to assist our local community with mass plantings alongside waterways, helping to regenerate our native bush and to help educate the importance of trees for our planet.
