Contracts & Ordering Early

It takes a year or two for us to grow our trees for you, so the earlier you place your order, the more likely we can supply you on time.

For projects with shorter lead times, contact us to secure your trees as soon as possible.  We are happy to grow on contract for you.

Delivery

Nationwide delivery is simple. We use a network of speciality freight companies delivering to your project within seven to 10 days. Auckland deliveries are generally daily with one of our curtain-sider trucks.  You are always welcome to collect your trees from our nursery, and we can help with loading and securing them.

Tree After-Care

Water trees as required through the first summer. Trees planted the previous autumn or winter will survive during summer. However, summer watering will greatly increase the growth and performance of your trees.

Annual mulching will help tree performance and is a great way to suppress weed growth, and give a manicured area under the tree. Mulching is best done in spring.

Use a controlled-release fertiliser such as Osmocote, applying once or twice a year, depending on the longevity of the fertiliser. Fertilising then mulching will give the best results.

Trim trees or hedges to shape as required. The more often they are trimmed, the better the result. Trimming hedges often increases the thickness of the hedge, and reduces the woodiness which results from trimming an overgrown hedge.

It is better to trim often to suit the application of the tree than to let it get too big and have to remove it. Most trees will tolerated being trimmed to size.
