A further 900 trees will be planted through a community volunteer initiative, also at the end of Beach St, between 10am and noon today.
Overall, more than 3000 native trees would be planted in Dunedin area this month, as living tributes to the men and women of the New Zealand Defence Forces, and marking the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War 1. Good weather meant a "brilliant" planting day.
Some of New Zealand's native habitat was being restored with support from iwi, schools, and community groups, he said.
