The Waipoua Forest Trust works to regenerate previously milled land surrounding the Waipoua Forest. Our aim is to protect this ancient kauri ecosystem from invasive pest species and the changing climate. To date the Waipoua Forest Trust has successfully restored over 150 hectares of kauri forest on the southern border of the Waipoua Forest Sanctuary. A further 88 hectares are planned for restoration in the coming years.
