Myimprint is proud to be helping with native restoration. Yesterday, Myimprint helped maintain the natives planted at Te Tapuwae O Rongokako Marine Reserve. Following planting, native plants usually need to be 'released' from weeds. The Myimprint team hiked into the beautiful location and removed weeds that were smothering the plants.
Puriri (Vitex Lucens), featured here, used to be plentiful in the Tairāwhiti region, providing a favorite food supply for Kererū, as well as sequestering carbon for hundreds of years.
Puriri, Kanuka, and Tī kōuka which were planted on the site, are all eligible species in the Emission trading Scheme (ETS) as they are all '"species that can reach at least 5 metres in height when mature in that location".

This is a great team building exercise, and physical exercise too!
