Small tree species make up the lower canopy trees within the forest and include some beautiful species such as the Cabbage Tree and Kowhai with its stunning flowers. To make sure the plant is right for the planting site, we will select a small tree species on your behalf. You will be informed of the species once your tree has been planted and recorded.

Small NZ Native Tree
You can select from a number of additional options, such as choosing your tree species, planting a tree yourself, adding GPS location, gift certificate, planting on a specific date or visiting your tree with a staff member. Additional costs will apply.
We aim to balance our planting sites, just as a real forest is balanced naturally. Clusters of smaller shrubs and trees provide the 'under canopy' and large trees providing the high canopy presence in the forest. The types of trees that we plant if you pick this category, include Mapou, Kanuka, Olearia, Lacebark, Broadleaf, Five Finger, Ngaio, Kowhai, Lemon Wood, and others. We prefer to select the species that is planted under each category or the forest can become unbalanced and dominated by one or two popular species. But if you have a particular tree in mind that you want us to plant, please select the relevant species in the options to the right (note there is an extra fee for selecting a specific species).
