About Us


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.

Happy Planting........
Murray and Eileen
