Welcome to takana

We sell native trees…at big tree stage!

takana, in Matakana, near Warkworth, grows almost every New Zealand native tree, at heights of 2m-5m in carry bags from 25L up to 450 Litres, plus field trees.

We have more than 80 species of beautiful native trees at big tree stage to enhance your landscape spaces, because…if you need instant impact, life’s too short to wait for small plants to become specimen trees.

takana has a policy of stocking all the native trees which will grow in the North (i.e. from Waikato/Bay of Plenty north).

takana grows more than 80 species, as well as intra-species variations. Half of these species are not commonly available from NZ nurserymen, but all have their own beauty and place within our unique ecology. And surprisingly, many of us have little or no knowledge of these – how they grow and what conditions they suit.

Check through our website for what you need to know–click on Find Your Tree from the top menu for access into the full catalogue, or type a species name in the Search box and click “enter”.

Currently takana is a wholesale nursery.
We welcome all enquiries by phone or email, we run a delivery service, and we have a pick up system.

In 2020, as we complete our second nursery site in Takatu Rd, we will also offer a Retail Store, where all our lines including small containers down to 2L will be available to the public.
