a tree in your name

When purchasing Rototaha in 1997, Hugh and Mandy started planting tees with the idea of creating a park / arboretum for family, friends, and visitors to enjoy.

It started with 3 woodlots - 2 of redwoods and 1 of douglas firs and areas of wetland for swamp birds.

Then the decidious trees were planted (birch, ash, oak, beech, maples are just a few of the many species along with conifers, natives and many flowering trees and shrubs of magnolias, dogwoods, rhododendrons and azaleas)

All these plantings gives a wonderful colour from spring to autumn and has created a habitat for many birds.

Enjoy the peace and quiet, take a walk, see how many birds you can spot and before you leave, you may like to plant a tree in rememberence of your stay.


Planting is still ongoing.
