All entries received will also go in the draw to win a $50 Mitre10 Gift Card spot prize. Entries for the competition will close at 5pm on Wednesday 22 August.

“Reaching 500,000 trees will be a huge milestone for Honda. We’re very proud of our commitment to helping to restore New Zealand’s bio-diversity. Honda has been funding tree plantings nationally since 2004.

“We developed TreeFund to encourage local bio-diversity and as an opportunity for customers to get involved in the protection and restoration of native tree populations in their own local community. For every new car a Honda agent sells, 13 native trees are planted locally,” says Graeme Meyer, Head of Marketing - Honda New Zealand. “We look forward to the next 500,000.”
