Freshford Nurseries is a family owned business who grows and supplies both native and exotic trees in large quantities to commercial projects.


Freshford’s main clientele are Councils and Developers requiring streetscape and park tree supply as well as Landscape Architects specifying advanced trees for commercial projects.


This will be a great opportunity for new and established landscape architects to get a behind the scenes look at the process involved in tree growing and production, and discussion on how best to specify trees and what to look for when approving ‘good’ stock.


What to expect:

We will begin with a walking tour of the tree production areas, giving an introduction into the process behind maintaining and the supply of ‘The Perfect Tree !!!!!’.


At the completion of the walking tour an informal discussion will focus on the importance of communication between the four key groups involved with the planning, supply and planting of trees, councils, landscape architects, developers and nurseries.  


---- How can we better work together to achieve the ‘Right Tree Selection’ for the Right Location??? ---


Marc Patterson from Andreasens Green Wholesale Nurseries a Major Wholesale tree and plant supplier for Sydney, has been invited to give us an insight into current projects and their processes for Sydney and Canberra.


Light refreshments and food will be provided.
