Auckland Council celebrated the recent multi-million Climate Action Targeted Rate (CATR) funding towards tree planting for the next decade with a commemorative planting day at Puhinui Reserve. In addition to major investments in public transport, the Climate Action Budget will build on the success of the Mayor’s Million Trees programme by injecting a further $13.3 million into tree planting activities across Tāmaki Makaurau, predominantly in low-income areas where canopy coverage is low.
