Regenerating A New Forest For Next Generations

Project 2020-02-29 16:05:48 +1300

 

I am restoring a 20 acres of native forest in Matapouri, Northland, New Zealand, on a land that was formerly used to produce timber from pines, to create a natural haven that can absorb CO2 emissions. I purchased the barren land after trees were felled to help it come back to its natural glamour, save plants and animals and absorb CO2 from my emissions and everybody-who-want-to-participate's emissions.

Climate change is already threatening livelihoods of thousands of human beings all over the world with increasing temperatures, decreased crops, increasing sea water levels as well as straining the life of plants and animals and quickly changing nature. I believe we are all responsible for these fast transformations. This new forest will absorb some of our emitted CO2 and will be the ground for education to sustainable living. I live in a private bush reserve on the edge of this barren land. We use solar power for all house functions and to pump water from the creek. I walk to work, my commute is 3 km of bush trail through kauris and kiwis. My impact is limited but I still feel I need to give back to Nature for my previous consumptions.

The home sanctuary bush is going to feed the neighbouring developing forest I am restoring. Birds will help move seeds that way. I will still have to plant thousands of trees and keep invasive weeds and carnivores away. Local community will help with volunteer work.

 

I need a starting budget to plant the first pioneer trees that will create the good environment for planting new big long-living trees in the next few years. I will then preserve the forest with a permanent covenant so that future generations can appreciate and enjoy Nature at its best.

I would need 7,000 NZD by April 15th to purchase the 5,000 manuka and kanuka, the marvellous first colonizers that prepare the conditions for everyone else, and that 7th graders are keen to plant!

 

If you are keen to help with even just a minimum 10 $ pledge, you will be rewarded by having your name and photo to the list of Patrons for Climate and Nature on my website (www.generationtrees.com) and on my facebook page (Parangaraa’hu Matapouri).

 

Thank you, Nature thanks you! Silvia
