NEW ZEALAND NATIVE PLANT NURSERIES SURVEY

Learning more about New Zealand’s capacity to produce native trees

One Billion Trees

WHAT ARE WE LEARNING?

NZ Plant Producers Inc is surveying the size and capabilities of New Zealand’s native plant nurseries. Working with Te Uru Rākau Forestry New Zealand, we are gathering information to understand more about the people and businesses underlying.

This is the first time anyone has taken a detailed look at the industry. The survey’s outcomes will help us learn more about New Zealand’s capacity to produce native plants, and our ability to plant and restore natives in different regions and environments.

Right now we are gathering and analysing the initial data, and will have more information coming through, with a final report published in early 2020.

 The Survey

In spring 2019, NZ Plant producers Inc. joined Te Uru Rākau Forestry New Zealand to make the first ever survey of New Zealand’s capacity to grow native plant seedlings.

Our Industry

New Zealand’s nursery industry is worth an estimated $500 million per year and employs approximately 4000 people.
