Trees have a unique place in our environment. Without them, human life as we know it would not exist. Trees conserve water, make our air breathable, absorb air pollution, and form the hub of enormous underground micro-environments that strengthen soil and foster insect life.

The Tree Council is a long-standing non-profit organisation established in 1986 to act as a steward for the trees of the Auckland region in New Zealand. The Tree Council exists to protect, conserve and improve the tree cover in the Auckland region, especially in urban areas.
