A SINGLE TREE REFLECTS OUR GREAT SPIRIT

There is a forest just a fence jump away from our backyard.

This forest is home to many Punga trees (tree fern), native to New Zealand, but it will soon be destroyed to build a road for our Kapiti Coast. For birds like the Tui and Bellbird, these trees are their home.

Driven by my dad's love to protect this beautiful tree, he has been rescuing these punga, one by one. Yet this one punga was particularly difficult, and due to its rather large size, we all got in on it.

It really amazed me how much effort was put in to save this single tree. It also made me realize how much we could achieve if we each work together to protect our own backyards. As it takes seconds to destroy a tree, years to grow, and just one hour to save this one. My hope is that this story inspires you to look after the nature that already lives in your own backyard. (However big or small it is).
