To protect, enhance and restore the Maraetōtara River from the top of the Maraetōtara Valley to its outflow into Hawke Bay at Te Awanga beach.
The Maraetōtara Tree Trust is a partnership between the 2002 formed conservation Trust, Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, private and corporate donors and very generous Valley Landowners, who agree to permanently covenant private farmland riparian margins.
Planting native trees offers many benefits for all New Zealanders. We know that it is possible to manage planted indigenous trees to improve biodiversity, protect riparian areas, and improve water quality, to enhance the landscape and store carbon.
