Trees for Bees NZ
Smart planting for healthy bees
Strong and healthy bees are a critical part of profitable agriculture.
In November 2009, Federated Farmers launched the ‘Trees for Bees NZ’ campaign to ensure that honey bees have the opportunity to gather sufficient pollen and nectar, providing the vitamins and minerals required to maintain optimum hive strength and a viable pollinating bee force.
The ten regional Federated Farmers Bee Plant Guides for this campaign are the result of collaboration between Federated Farmers, Landcare Research, the Oceania Pollinator Initiative, and many beekeepers, farmers and nursery owners.
