The government has announced that it will provide a grant to enable the planting of 35,000 native trees in 40 schools across the motu.

The announcement comes on Arbor Day (June 5), with the government looking to reinvigorate the international day of tree planting.

Aotearoa celebrated its first Arbor Day in 1890.

Forestry Minister Stuart Nash said it had signed partnerships with the Trees That Count and Trees for Survival programmes.

Tree planting, especially with native trees, is a proven method to slow down the effects of climate change.
