New Zealand Evergreen Trees

Trees - Evergreen

Evergreen trees and shrubs are among the select variety of plants that offer plenty of unique benefits. The dense canopy of these trees helps reduce visual effects, make for effective windbreaks, provide shelter for a variety of wildlife and assist in noise reduction. The foliage of evergreen trees is also present all year (hence evergreen) thereby offering year-round beauty and colour for your outdoors.

North Harbour Big Tree Company provide a quality range of evergreen trees including Australian Bush Cherry, Bottlebrush and Magnolia. Our trees can enhance the look of your garden and provide year-round foliage.

In order for evergreen trees in NZ to look their best, proper planting, fertilising, watering and pruning is necessary to maintain the best shape and canopy growth year round.

As a trusted provider of tree planting services in Auckland, we want you to find the best tree for your garden. You can contact our team of tree specialists to determine the best evergreen species for your garden/yard or green space. We are also happy to give you advice about correct care and maintenance of your evergreen trees as this is important while trees are still young.
