At Gracefarm 52.5 hectare is covenanted Conservation land.
This is where owners can enjoy their own bush and be part of an environment solution and earn carbon credits
Enjoy the amazing mature and regenerating native bush which is secured by covenant now and for future generations.
The conservation area is now fenced and surveyed. Since 2008 we have planted over 40,000 native trees protecting riparian margins (stream beds) and steeper hill country.
There are areas of existing quality native bush. One area, with a boundary to the tidal Te Hana River on the Kaipara Harbour is classified SNA (Significant Natural Asset) in the Rodney District Plan (now Auckland City) and has mature Totara, Kauri, Karaka and a wide variety of other native species.
While all the essential (essential to resource consent) planting is complete, we continue to plant a variety of native trees in the conservation/ restoration areas year by year. New owners may enjoy being part of this but there is no obligation.
