For more than 45 years Speciality Trees has been a leader in the production and supply of advanced environmentally sustainable, containerised landscape trees for local government, the landscaping industry and retailers.
With a reputation for growing premium tree material, we are naturally an advocate for quality. And as a longstanding champion for sustainability, we are also conscious of minimising our impact on the environment, employing strict production measures for a clean, chemical-free, carbon-neutral footprint.
Our best practice processes focus on the tree’s structure and root ball, all the while growing in a positive, biological, bug-friendly environment that builds the most resilient tree possible. This is a philosophy based on both science and instinct, where we nurture our trees as we would our children; making sound structural decisions early as junior stock, so our fully mature specimens are structurally strong and defensively equipped to handle the often harsh, poorly maintained landscape environment beyond the production nursery.
These practices involve:
Australian Standard AS2303 – Tree Stock for Landscape Use - provides technical above and below the ground information to evaluate the quality of tree material grown by production nurseries.
So why do we need AS2303?
Speciality Trees is proud of its material consistency. For us, AS2303 is a welcome dimension to our business, as it opens up discussion between the buyer and the seller on not only how a quality tree is grown but on the attributes sought for new residential lines sometimes based on slight genetic differences.
With a balanced view and transparent processes, both the buyer and seller are in a better position.
So what should you look for when buying trees?
We believe AS2303 will drive growers towards new and better processes on each and every species they grow, as well as highlight those innovative nurseries already growing to quality production standards.
If you would like to know more about our motivation and methods to grow well, please talk to us at the enquiry stage or at the time of purchase.
Councils and the general public are only just catching up with what us Nursery people and horticulturalists already know: Trees are valuable to our way of life. They assist us to stay warm or cold and aid in the filtration of fresh air for breathing. Imagine a life without trees? Here's some reasons why everyone should be planting more trees.
