Crowdfunding with tree registries

Learn how to set up and give to registries in lieu of gifts, to honour an occasion or to help raise funds for native trees.

Updated over a week ago

Creating a Tree Registry on Trees That Count is a meaningful way to contribute to Aotearoa New Zealand's native reforestation efforts.

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, remembering a loved one, or encouraging donations instead of gifts — setting up a registry allows individuals or businesses to support the planting of native trees.

By creating a registry, you're inviting others to join you in making a positive environmental impact.

How to give through a tree registry

  1. Search for a tree registry you’d like to gift to

  2. Select ‘Add your gift’

  3. Select your donation preferences:

    1. The number of trees to be planted

    2. Your preferred planting location for your trees

    3. If you like, leave an optional message for your donation

  4. Finally, confirm your payment details to finalise the donation

Once the donation has been processed, you’ll receive an automated email with your donation receipt.
