Project Crimson is a charitable trust which plants hundreds of thousands of native trees throughout NZ every year. $10 plants a tree!
In 2020, New Zealand charity Project Crimson Trust celebrates 30 years at the heart of protecting and renewing our native trees.
Project Crimson first started in 1990 to help save the pōhutukawa, and later the northern and southern rātā, which were dangerously close to extinction. Decades of hard work followed with Project Crimson rallying community groups, businesses and volunteers to support the planting of over 300,000 pōhutukawa and rātā – dramatically turning around the fortunes of our beloved ‘Christmas trees’.
We're continuing our mahi today, educating and inspiring New Zealanders to value and love all species of our native trees through our programme Trees That Count and our environmental education programme TREEmendous.
All donations here will go into native tree planting projects throughout New Zealand.
