In the first 2-3 years, 39000 trees were planted so developing the first stages of our arboretum. Redwoods, Douglas firs, and nz natives, decidious trees rhododendrons, magnolias wetland areas were developed and now there’s an abundance of bird life to watch and beautiful walks through the property.
