After working in plant nurseries in North Taranaki for four years Murray and Eileen
bought their own property in Opunake in 1980. When purchased, the property consisted
of a couple of dilapidated sheds and was bordered by overgrown boxthorn hedges.
They started growing some trees the first year and gradually developed the property.
It became a full time business in 1990. The Garden Centre was added in 1994.
Since that time they have provided trees to local farmers, lifestyle block holders
and owners of residential sections. Since our trees are grown in a tough coastal
environment they are popular with people who live near the coast and we have sold
trees as far north as Whakatane and as far south as Dunedin.
We also supply trees to the Taranaki Regional Council for the riparian scheme. With
over 30 years of growing on the coast we are happy to offer you the right advice
to make the best decisions with your purchase. We want to see you buying trees that
are going to grow and thrive in your area.
