Civic Project Requiring Landscaping

Kerikeri Bypass
Northland District Council


A significant civic project requiring high amenity value landscaping.

The bypass consisted of 1.5 km of motorway, an over bridge with multiple planting zones from dry forest to wetland.

Our largest standard revegetation project to date with over 60,000 plants.

This is where Red Tree developed a taste for projects of scale and native regeneration.


This project was labor intensive that required high staff motivation and effective project management to ensure high planting quality. The challenges were working around heavy machinery as the motorway was being built. The lead contractor was HEB’s construction.

The Solution

Using reliable and reputable nurseries, we ensured high quality and robust plants. With a large planting team, we were able to effectively complete the planting in the short seasonal time frames.

Our Outcome

Fantastic establishment 3 years on, plant growth is verdant and has contributed greatly to the amenity value of the bypass as well as is providing a prime food source for native birds.
