Lets’ not re-invent the wheel: simple tools for a tree nursery©

B. Dippie
My talk is about some simple tools or solutions to everyday jobs that we use with our business. These are used in combination with other techniques to grow our crops and are in themselves not complicated. They are easy to make, and may save yourself a bit of time, or ease the task by making it a little easier on yourself and your body.
Marie and I operate our small nursery, The Tree Farm, here in the Waimea Plains in Nelson. We grow mainly deciduous trees and shrubs and a small amount of natives mainly in open ground seed beds. The total area we use is less than a hectare, and our production numbers are small. The range of items we grow is mainly 1- or 2-year-old trees or shrubs, through to topiary and budded or grafted lines.
