Exciting New Tree Planting Program for a Greener Future

At Kimo Estate, we believe in the power of nature to heal and rejuvenate our natural environment. For the past seven years, we’ve been on a sustainable mission to cultivate a greener future by planting trees on our property. Now, we’re excited to invite our guests to join us in this important endeavour through our new tree planting program.

Many of the trees on Kimo are very old and there is a real danger that in 40 years time, most of them will die. We are committed to turning this around to maintain the rich biodiversity of Kimo Estate.

The Importance of Trees on Farms

Trees play a crucial role in the health and productivity of agricultural landscapes. Scattered paddock trees provide essential shelter for livestock, protecting them from the elements and reducing stress. They also help to improve soil structure and fertility, preventing erosion and retaining moisture. Moreover, trees serve as natural habitat for wildlife, supporting biodiversity and ecosystem health. Home to an abundance of native fauna and our most important friends, the bees.

Our Tree Planting Program

With our new tree planting program, guests have the opportunity to contribute to our sustainability efforts during their stay at Kimo Estate. When booking their accommodation, guests can choose to add a donation to our tree planting initiative. Your donation will fund the planting of paddock trees and tree lots across our farm. We plan to plant more than 10,000 trees by 2035 and we need your help.
