Ornamental Trees: 

  • Trees are an investment and they can last for generations.  They are mostly sold as 3-4 year old trees 2-3m in size. These have fully formed trunks and should be suitable for most gardens. Most trees need staking when young and careful soil preparation and watering in dry weather till they are established.
  • For small gardens choose trees such as those listed below with interest for months of the year: coloured leaves, flowers, berries or bark.
  • Height range given is approximate size after 10-20 years.



What's so good about trees?  

1. Trees clean the air & provide oxygen

Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles.In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.

2. Trees help prevent water pollution & erosion

Trees reduce runoff by breaking rainfall. Trees act like a sponge that filters this water. On hillsides or stream slopes, trees slow runoff and hold soil in place.

3. Fruit Trees can provide food for people and animals

An apple tree can yield up to 100s fruit per year and can be planted in the tiniest garden urban lot. Aside from fruit for humans, trees provide food for birds and wildlife.

4. Trees provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife

Sycamore and oak are among the many urban species that provide excellent urban homes for birds, bees, possums and squirrels.

5. Trees block things like ugly buildings and neighbours

Trees can mask concrete walls or parking lots, and unsightly views. They muffle sound from nearby streets and freeways, and create an eye-soothing canopy of green. Trees absorb dust and wind and reduce glare.

6. Trees increase property values

The beauty of a well-planted property and its surrounding street and neighborhood can raise property values by as much as 15 percent.

7. Trees make you feel good! Everyone Loves Trees

Trees and woodland have been shown to add to welbeing and to calm people in the face of life's stresses.

8. Trees can be planted to mark any occasion.

Births, Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Retirement
