The OurTrees Project

The OurTrees Project seeks to restore, preserve, nurture and protect our New Zealand indigenous native forests to provide a healthy habitat for our native birds and animals. These forests play a major part in sequestering CO2 helping offset the unnatural level of CO2 emitted by our modern society.

Having a background in enterprise IT has led us to develop a system for digitally recording information on the trees, funghi and other features in our forest. This gives us a set of baseline data allowing us to measure changes and improvements delivered by the project over time.
