Wairakei Resort Taupo

Wairakei Resort has identified an area of exotic forest on a hillside currently in forestry tree species that it would like to replace with native plantings, to create a more permanent area of habitat for native species and to enhance the property’s general aesthetic appeal. Wairakei will fund the removal and replanting of this area. Greening Taupo should offer to develop a planting list of suitable plants for this area to assist with this project.
