Central government and local councils are widely involved in tree planting programmes, including producing trees, administering funding and procuring trees.

The Department of Conservation has resources and advice for ecological restoration.

Government agencies procuring native trees for planting programmes include the New Zealand Transport Agency which has roading infrastructure projects which include significant planting programmes.

Councils also operate nurseries supplying native trees for local planting programmes. Many regional and local councils support native tree planting in their areas. Some also administer funding for tree planting through government funds under various erosion control programmes:
