$25 Wilding Christmas Tree Fundraiser for I Am Hope. Together we can all make a difference this Xmas


Are you looking for something a little different this Christmas? Then choose a Christmas tree that makes a difference.

A donation of $25 will reserve your Wilding Christmas tree, please be sure to share your details with us when you donate so we can get in touch to arrange your tree.

As one of New Zealand's most invasive weeds, wilding pines threaten to permanently alter our unique landscapes throughout New Zealand's high country.

High Country Contracting has been working with a number of organisations over the years to help eradicate this pest, especially within the regions of Twizel and the Mackenzie Country, and have developed a great initiative so that you can also play your part this Christmas.

You can purchase ($25 a tree), or donate to a family in need, a wilding pine with all proceeds from the sale given to the I Am Hope Charitable Trust to support their in-school, community, and workplace mental health programmes.

This offer is only open to people that can collect their tree from the Pleasant Point township of South Canterbury on the 5th of December.

Please keep in mind that wilding pines aren't perfectly grown and have a bit of character to them. They will also need to be properly disposed of after use to ensure there is no environmental risk.
