Quality plants at wholesale prices

Founded in 2010, the Tūaropaki Native Plant Nursery is an integral part of the Ngaire George Sustainability Centre at Mōkai. The original focus of production at the Tūaropaki Trust’s nursery was on native species suitable for planting in environmentally sensitive areas, such as along waterways. This is still important in what gets propagated, though the nursery also has a stock of larger grade trees for beautification plantings or landscaping. Seed is sourced locally in the Central Plateau ensuring a better chance of survival and health when trees and shrubs are planted. The Trust has a long record of preparing and planting areas with nursery stock on its own farmland to assist in revegetation projects like waterway protection and soil conservation.

The Nursery deals in bulk orders for large revegetation projects.
