Ko te mahi i waenga ake, horapa noa rānei i te rākau

Working on or around trees

​Trees contribute to Auckland being a desirable place to live and are an important part of Auckland’s natural heritage and identity. Trees also:
  • conserve water
  • make our air breathable
  • absorb air pollution
  • support our slopes
  • make our streets attractive and liveable
  • support our health and wellbeing
  • protect our properties from erosion, and
  • provide habitat and food for wildlife.
