History of Ahuriri nursery

The nursery was started to supply a few small projects locally and has expanded from there. Currently it supplies approximately 800 plants for Forest and Bird plantings at Lake Tutira, several hundred for planting in the lower Ahuriri Estuary, 500 for Cape Kidnappers Sanctuary, 400 for Adeanes Bush restoration and a number of  smaller orders for schools, marae etc. Threatened plants go out to several sites including Boundary stream Mainland Island, Maungataniwha, Balls Clearing Scenic Reserve and Mahia.
