Hill Country Erosion Fund
Nelson City Council has received funding from the Ministry for Primary Industries Hill Country Erosion Fund to plant trees on erosion-prone land, and to build knowledge in Council and the community about managing hill country sites.

- Plant 50,000 trees per year on erosion-prone land
- Work collaboratively with iwi owners of forestry land across the top of the South
- Work with small forest owners to develop Forestry Environment Plans.
