Why plant trees for bees?
In 2009 Federated Farmers launched the ‘Trees for Bees NZ’ initiative to ensure that honey bees have the opportunity to gather sufficient pollen and nectar, providing the vitamins and minerals required to maintain optimum hive strength and a viable pollinating bee force. Through this initiative a number of trees and plants were identified.
What we grow
We have a range of trees suitable for hedge plants, feature trees, riparian plantings, wasteland and shade trees for livestock.
We also stock a range of garden plants and old fashioned cottage flowers for your garden.
If you are thinking about planting more than Manuka or Radiata and are looking for something more interesting, we can assist.
We can help with farm planting plans that cover Manuka, riparian, firewood and timber using a mix of flowering natives and exotics, including Eucalyptus.
We can also help with the development of grant applications under the One Billion Trees programme.
