The Forest at the Heart of Wellington is the biggest community-led tree planting project in Wellington. It involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the Wellington Town Belt. The aim of this project is to create a greener, healthier environment within the city and to show-case to the nation how humans and nature can thrive in the same place. This project is in partnership with Rotary Club of Wellington, Wellington City Council and supported by the MPI Matariki Tu Rakau fund.
