Spring is coming to the COLC Nursery. This Kauri is one of the first to burst into leaf this season but others are beginning to stir as the new growing season approaches. Right now there are almost 2000 Kauri trees in the nursery, and I know there are a large number of past COLC students who have invested their time in those trees. Thank you all.
It takes 3 to 4 years in the nursery, before a Kauri tree is big enough to plant back into the environment, but the number of trees we have planted out is growing, and there are now about 700 Kauris in the ground at our planting site.
A Kauri tree can live for 2000 years or more, and over their lifetime they will sequester a huge amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. If you are concerned about your carbon footprint, and would like to do something positive about it, talk to us about making a donation to the COLC Environmental Fund and we will plant some Kauri trees on your behalf.
