Trees for Survival Trust

The Trust encourages other community groups to sponsor and support schools to grow trees and plant them on eroded land. The Trust has developed a unit about preventing soil erosion called 'Saving our Soils'.

Be active in environmental education! Develop a growing unit in your area and create a sustainable environment for the future. Check out the Trees for Survival(external link) website.

For more information about the Trees for Survival Unit contact us online or phone  Waikato Regional Council's Freephone, 0800 800 401.
