AGATHIS AUSTRALIS  tree in new zealand

AGATHIS AUSTRALIS

A true NZ icon, this tall-growing native tree creates a natural canopy as the plant gets older. It has oval, green, glossy, leathery leaves and layered branches. This is one of the largest trees in the world so it needs lots of space and is good for open sections or larger gardens. It is also good as an accent against a tall building or as a stand-alone feature.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
