Inspired by the 'Blue Skies for our Children’ philosophy of our founder Soichiro Honda, the Honda TreeFund is a Honda New Zealand initiative.
Since inception in 2004, the Honda TreeFund has funded the planting of more than 740,000 trees throughout Aotearoa. This includes a record 31,436 trees in 2018 to celebrate Honda’s 30th Anniversary in New Zealand.
From 2018 Honda has worked with Trees That Count to fund trees for local and regional planting projects, and coordinate activities including staff, customer and public planting days.
Honda TreeFund has also partnered with the Waimakariri District Council for a special 4-year project in the Kaiapoi regeneration area to create the Honda Forest. This former redzone site will see the restoration of a lowland forest with 12,500 plantings for the enjoyment of local residents.
