Project Crimson began in 1990, a joint effort between DOC and carter Holt Harvey to fight the decline in pohutukawa and rata caused by brushtail possums. They don't just eat leaves, says trustee Gordon Hosking, they snack on buds too, which kills whole shoots. There was a time a few years ago when pohutukawa were headed for extinction: we lost the plot and let them suffer at the hands of rampant possums and careless farmers. Project crimson stepped in with large-scale fencing projects, and propagation and planting schemes, and spread the message about the damage grazing animals can do. NOW the future's looking much rosier, visit for more info.
