Ōtaki Carbon Forests
Ngā Ngahere Waro o Ōtaki

Trees to help us reach our goal.

Ōtaki Carbon Foest has been set up to establish new, permanent forests to sequester carbon and boost biodiversity, helping Ōtaki become a carbon neutral town.

We plan to help establish plant a minimum of 32 hectares of new forest!

How? By supporting interested landowners and kaitiaki in forest planning, planting and more...

  • Can anyone get a bike? Is it free?
    Yes! Koha is appreciated.
  • Do you want my bike? Where can I drop it off?
    Is your bike in pretty good condition? Needing no or only minor repairs? Then yes please. You can bring your bike/s to Energise Ōtaki's office between 10am-2pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Or if that's not possible, email Kirsty to arrange a pick-up.
  • I'm not sure if my bike is in good enough condition. How do I find out?
    If you think your bike might need more than a minor repair, please send us a photo or a description of it. That will help determine if it is worth repairing salvaging for parts or sending to recycling.
  • Do I have to know how to repair bikes to volunteer?
    No! There's a job for everyone.
Ngā mihi to Ōtaki Carbon Forests' funders and sponsors.
