Annual Tree Planting - Tawa's Bush Reserves

I hope you can join us for our annual tree planting on Sunday 13 June at 1.00pm.  The Rotary Club of Port Nicholson has teamed up with The Friends of Tawas Bush Reserves for the fourth year in a row to plant trees at Woodburn Bush Reserve, 66 Bing Lucas Drive, Tawa.   

Our goal is to build on what we did the last two years – over 1500 trees in total!  We will continue planting native trees in Tawa to regenerate our native Bush to provide habitat and food for the increasing numbers of native birds, to make lovely walking areas for us all, and to help slow down global warming.  Interact and Rotaract members are very welcome to join us. 

Tree planting is for everyone.  You don’t have to be super fit to join us.  There are several jobs to choose from or you could do some of each such as: digging holes; planting trees, setting out trees for planting, and picking up the tree packets for reusing.  Another option is to help out with the afternoon tea.  There are lots of ways to contribute and everybody is welcome to come along.

If you’re joining us for the tree planting here are the details:

  • Tree planting is at 66 Bing Lucas Drive Tawa on Sunday 13 June 1.00pm start.  (if the address entrance to the planting changes I’ll let you know closer to the time)
  • Please leave vehicles on Bing Lucas Drive and walk up the private road access to the reserve entrance.
  • There will be a Friends of Tawa Bush Reserves flag at the Reserve entrance off the private road.
  • We will start with a brief introduction, health and safety talk and planting demonstration on the site when most have arrived so it would be good if we can all get there ready to start on site at 1.00pm.
  • Please bring your own spade and gloves.  If you don’t have a spade feel free to borrow one from a friend or let Lisa King know and she will seek to borrow some.  I have plenty of spare gloves which she will bring on the day.
  • Wear clothing appropriate to the weather. 
  • I will coordinate afternoon tea.  If you’d like to help please let Lisa know.
  • I will contact you if the weather on the day is unsuitable for planting and we will reschedule.
  • Let’s aim to at least match our previous efforts and plant another 500 trees!
  • If you need to reach me either email me and/or text/phone 021 265 6220. 

If you would like to take part, please accept this invitation and provide your contact phone number.  I am coordinating the Club’s participation and can be reached on 021 265 6220 or email

We hope to see you on Sunday 13th June at 1pm. 


Best wishes
