Team Mahitahi Blog - January Update

Our first focus for going into the new year is after care for our native plantings from 2021. Aftercare is an important part of our role, helping to ensure that the natives we have planted thrive in their new environment. You may see these plantings when adventuring into the Maitai along the many trails and tracks. Another major focus is clearing more ground for future planting in 2022, this number will be adding onto some existing plantings; alongside some new and exciting planting sites of which we have been getting ready over the summer. 

Some of our team also took part in a chainsaw course at the end of 2021 which was great to upskill and ensure our health and safety around chainsaw use was fully up to scratch.
