He Rā Rākau Tītapu – King Charles III Coronation Plantings

To celebrate the coronation of King Charles III, the New Zealand government is donating $1 million to fund the planting of native trees across Aotearoa. The initiative will be led by Trees That Count in partnership with the Department of Conservation and volunteers across Aotearoa over the coming months. 

King Charles III has had a lifelong interest in conservation and sustainability – this tree-planting initiative honours that commitment and marks the coronation of the King of New Zealand. 

Around the weekend of the coronation, May 5-7, 2023, ceremonial tree-planting events will be held across the motu, to commemorate the occasion and mark the beginning of the planting initiative. 

A national event will be held in Pukekawa Auckland Domain on 7 May 2023 from 1 pm. We encourage families and whānau to come along to the event and mark this special occasion. Entertainment and kai will be provided. Visit gg.govt.nz for more information.

Local councils around the country will also be hosting events of their own, so everyone across the motu can get involved. More information about local events will be available from councils in the lead-up to the coronation.
