Dipton Lime Quarry has secured funding to plant 7.2 hectares of the site to create a native forest as part of the quarry's remediation work. The native planting will not only improve the look and environmental impact of the quarry and provide biodiversity and ecological benefits to the area but also absorb 90 tonnes of carbon every year.  The project is stage one of a ten-year plan to establish native bush at all of our quarry sites, which are located in notably remote and ecologically valuable pockets of New Zealand.
