Indigenous (native) plants provide a huge range of benefits to your farm. They are the best plants to grow beside riparian areas because they will provide shade and reduce nutrient run-off into the water, improving water quality. They will never become a weed problem as they are plants that are supposed to be there, and they won’t cause flooding or erosion issues in the future. Planting indigenous plants around your property will increase the biodiversity on your farm and will provide habitat for a range of New Zealand’s unique animals and insects. Indigenous trees can also be used to provide shade to stock, or be grown specifically to offset carbon emissions. Indigenous plantings are appropriate on steep hillslopes for erosion control, in gullies, and around wetlands and waterways.
