A tree for every child in Golden Bay has been planted at a remnant kahikatea forest in the Abel Tasman National Park.

A team from Golden Bay High and Motupipi Primary schools, Forest and Bird, a member of the Hadfield family and many from the Golden Bay community, planted 846 kahikatea and maitai trees at Hadfield Clearing last Sunday.

The area is one of the largest stands of this forest type left in the Nelson Tasman region.

The work is a part of Project Janszoon’s restoration work of the Abel Tasman National Park. The area has also been adopted by Golden Bay High School as part of the Abel Tasman Youth Ambassador (ATYA) project.

Project Janszoon spokesperson Robyn Janes said they were hoping to get 695 trees planted – one for every child in Golden Bay.
