Pauanui Proposed Planting Trial

A proposed planting trial for the Pauanui foreshore for the winter of 2021 has been put on held due to COVID-19.

Due to the timing of the COVID-19 lockdown and restrictions (and potential risks going back to restricted levels) around volunteer events, and plant health risks with predicted normal or below-normal rainfall (according to NIWA), we have made the decision to postpone the trial (and associated earthworks/planting) at Pauanui this year. We are working closely with our conservation nursery supplier to monitor and maintain our native dune plants in our holding nursery to plan for planting the trial area in May 2022.

Further updates will come early in 2022 around this trial planting project.
