The Moutere catchment group is now two years old. It started off with a spark from one landowner who then gathered 10 landowners, swelling it to 100 by their first official meeting and now has 200 landowners working together. And we want further engagement, with your help, please talk to your neighbours. Landowner engagement has been driving the success of this project.

With the help of Tasman Environmental Trust (TET), Tasman District Council and NZ Landcare Trust numbers are anticipated to grow even further, with the group just securing $1.9 million in funding from the One Billion Trees and $0.96 million funding from the Provincial Development Unit for riparian fencing.

The Moutere Catchment Group has ambitious goals of planting 270,000 trees over three years (21,000 in year 1 done already!) and adding 35 km of riparian fencing. This was based on requests from requests from landowners like yourself. The goal is to improve water quality and create biodiversity links along waterways. We are looking now for you to indicate how many plants you would like for planting from May to August 2021 this year and where you want to plant them. We will be asking to you to complete either a farm environmental plan or planting plan using our templates on our website before receiving the plants.

We have some funding to assist in planting and tree releasing for those that cannot carry out these tasks themselves.

The information collected from this survey will be held NZ Landcare Trust and Tasman Environment Trust. Individual data will not be shared with anyone without your permission.

Please note: Plant requests for the 2021 season are now closed.
