Thousands of native trees were donated by Trees that Count as part of an initiative with Z service stations around the country.

Those that filled up their car at Z last Thursday contributed to the cause, with 6 cents from every litre of fuel donated to the native tree planting organisation.

Nelson was one of four regions selected as the recipients of 5000 native trees which will be planted at the Dominion Flats Reserve and neighbouring Higgs Reserve, either side of Mapua Drive off the Coastal Highway.
