Pukemiro Ridge is a 60 hectare block near the west coast at Aranga, with steep slopes, rolling hills and ocean views. There exists a freshwater spring, creek and wetland through the central gully. Stock and all internal fencing were removed from the site and areas vulnerable to erosion and water pollution were planted out in 2020-21 with hardy nursery crop species. Regeneration of the surrounding area was undertaken over the 22-2023 planting seasons. Maintenance to keep these trees alive is ongoing.
