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.

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.
