There’s no hibernation during winter. And no discontent either. Instead, it’s full steam ahead (or moisture vapour from warm breath anyway) as we busy ourselves with receiving a few thousand trees. Each is meticulously inspected, with roots pruned and shape pruned, if needed.
So far we’ve processed over 5’000 trees this winter with many more to come…

Ryland carries our quality control and pruning process, showing Quercus palustris – Pin Oaks
Warren carefully transports some newley containerised trees to their spot in the nursery, where they’ll be cared for, growing strong and healthy.
Brandon checks the potting sheet, ensuring the records are correct so we can be certain of stock levels.
More action this week in the nursery! This large 50 year old Spreading Elm was moved from nearby to our new 6 acre nursery block entrance – which is directly opposite our current Pomona Rd site. Adding instant Heritage to this area.
