About 10–15% of the total land area of New Zealand is covered with native flora, from tall kauri and kohekohe forests to rainforest dominated by rimu, beech, tawa, matai and rata; ferns and flax; dunelands with their spinifex and pingao; alpine and subalpine herb fields; and scrub and tussock. In order to meet these requirements, native trees registered through Trees That Count must be capable of reaching the 5 metre height requirement. Most native trees and shrubs planted in restoration programmes in New Zealand in fact meet this requirement. Visit for more detail on how to determine which species comply.
