Christmas Greetings from the New Zealand Notable Trees Trust (NZNTT)
The NZNTT Database is Open
For those of you that did not attend the New Zealand Arboricultural Association conference in Blenheim last month, the Trustees wish to inform you that the NZNTT database is now open for viewing.
The database is accessible through the NZNTT website at www.notabletrees.org.nz
Here you will find a link to The New Zealand Tree Register on the Tree Register page or you can follow this link register.notabletrees.org.nz/tree/search . You do not need to log in to view the tree files.
The information contained on the database is searchable in various formats i.e. genus, city, region etc. After you have made your initial search, further sorting can be achieved by clicking on the column headers i.e champion tree score. To open a tree file simply click on 'view'.
Much of the existing tree data requires updating. Records shown as unverified requires confirmation the tree still exists or needs to be re-measured. If one of these trees is in your area you can assist the Trust by sending an update via the information submission form which is located at the top of each online tree record.
Register as a Tree Recorder register.notabletrees.org.nz/user/register
If you would like to submit new trees to the NZNTT, click on the link above to open an account. You will be sent a message when your account has been enabled. A guide to measuring, recording additional information and the submission of new trees online are contained on the NZNTT website.
Merry Christmas from the NZNTT Trustees,
