Our Impact


We are doing big things here in Taupo!

We had the seed of an idea, it grew and it’s already made a significant impact. Greening Taupo is living proof of what can be achieved, with vision, grit, determination and drive.  We now have a community that supports and benefits from positive environmental change and partners who value the projects we’re involved with and who enjoy the benefit, on many levels, of being aligned with us. 

Greening Taupo has a positive impact on this community’s environment, economic, social and physical wellbeing.  Read more on the Value of Trees.

With the fourth planting season completed, there’s visible evidence of our many successful projects and room for a whole lot more.  Greening Taupo has big plans for the future and there are plenty of opportunities and rewards when you work alongside us, whether as a major sponsor, a partner business, a wicked weeder or someone at the end of a spade – together we’ll continue to make an impact and make it worthwhile because Greening Taupo benefits everyone.


Trees Planted:


This includes all our Community Planting Days. When you add up all the trees planted the number is pretty impressive. And the number keeps climbing every planting season. Let’s keep this number growing - next stop 100,000!

Volunteer hours:


We can’t make it happen without the help of volunteers and we’ve been overwhelmed by the turn out of volunteers every planting day. Keep it up - every hour counts!



This ‘trees planted’ figure includes all the trees planted by local organisations in region including Taupo District Council, Pamu, Waikato Regional Council and Contact Energy. If you been doing some planting, let us know so we can keep track in our massive tally!
