We are a small boutique-style nursery that operates on a large scale, focused entirely on providing remarkable trees that turn ordinary gardens into masterpieces. Trees of Distinction allows landscapers to make their dream garden designs become realities, by giving them the resource available to install such beautiful large trees, which have previously been hard to obtain in NZ. We don’t supply mediocre, mass-produced, standard nursery stock; we are about exceptional, massive, mature, unique in formation, or hard-to-find trees.


Potted Trees In Stock at our Auckland Nursery

We hold an elite collection of specimen trees at our nursery in Auckland. These trees are our ‘off-the-shelf’ range of impressive specimens which have been prepared for installation, and are available for purchase now*. These trees have either been grown-on from smaller stock, or uplifted from the ground. Its a good idea to visit our site, not only to see what we have available but it can also be a good inspiration for upcoming projects (site visits are by appointment only). Our in-stock trees are bagged or boxed and tenderly cared for by our experienced nursery managers for the duration of their time with us.

(*with the exception of any trees that have newly arrived at our nursery, as they may need a settling period before being ready to be replanted).

In-ground Trees Uplifted and Installed

Our experienced team lift trees from the ground, deliver, and re-install in a highly professional manner. For years we have successfully uplifted and safely transplanted numerous trees which are now thriving in their final habitat. This is a very specialised procedure and we are only able to offer this service confidently due to the wealth of knowledge and experience of our team members.

We have access to a wide variety of trees from far and wide. Our comprehensive range of contacts and resources enable us to continue our supply of exceptional and mature trees for you.

Most trees require a settling period before being installed into your landscape project, however there are instances where the uplift and the install can be done in the same procedure. Talk to Jon to discuss options.
