Quality planting stock…..
Why are our Rotorua Forest Nursery trees renowned for their quality? Our site at Owhata, Rotorua is a proven forest nursery site, first selected by the Forest Service in the 1970s. Even pre-European Māori from around the district used the fertile soils and northerly aspect of the Owhata flats to cultivate their food crops. As well as being fertile and productive through the growing season, the site is also excellent for hardening and conditioning the seedlings with regular good frosts through the planting season.
The most important ingredient to growing good trees is people. Peter Harington has been in the forest industry for over 40 years, working for several of the major forest corporates in that time. He has managed forest nurseries for nearly 30 years, most recently he was involved in leading edge forest nursery research while manager of the Scion research nursery. The team at Rotorua Forest Nursery is loaded with experience. Mandy, our Operations Manager has been running the growing operations for 11 years, although she started way back, lifting trees at the current site as a teenager. We have a loyal team of dedicated seasonal lifters who take pride in their role in dispatching quality seedlings and cuttings each winter.
