Wairoa to Wairarapa iwi Ngāti Kahungunu has teamed up with Hawke’s Bay Regional Council on a plan to plant millions of trees on 250,000 ha of erosion-prone land.

The Kāhutia Accord signed on Friday is a formal partnership to assist the region to become New Zealand’s first carbon neutral province by 2040.

Ngāti Kahungunu Incorporated chair Ngāhiwi Tomoana says the programme will lift the productivity of erosion prone land and reinvigorate both its freshwater and coastal marine environments.

It should also boost employment, particularly in the Wairoa district.

There will be opportunities for post-settlement groups and whanau to develop businesses in honey, rongoā, pest control and tourism.

Ngati Kahungunu has applied to the Provincial Growth Fund to fund the plan.
