Kiwiblog tree tracker mentioned in Parliament

From Hansard:

Jenny Marcroft: How can members of the public and Kiwiblog readers track progress towards the 1 billion trees target?

Hon SHANE JONES: We have a new website. That website is being developed in association with one of New Zealand’s most successful businessmen, Sir Stephen Tindall. That is like a tree counter, and, as each tree counts, greater the popularity will be not only for the forest sector and for careers but also for the modest proponent, Matua Shane Jones!

Nice to see NZ First MPs noticing the tree counter.

At the time of writing this post, the Government needs to have planted 57,610,567 trees to be on schedule to make their target of one billion over ten years.

The actual number planted is five.
