Nothing but quality trees and service at Tree Sales nursery
WHILE the company name is simple, the business itself is anything but, with Tree Sales owners Colin and Sandra Kramer knowing just about everything you would ever need to know about trees.
Tree Sales is a specialised wholesale tree nursery based in Baranduda in North East Victoria with the Kramer’s focus being on suppling their clients with high- quality trees.
“To produce such quality we have stringent procedures in place throughout the nursery for hygiene, biosecurity and methods of production,” Mr Kramer said.
“With more than 16 years’ experience in arboriculture encompassing tree assessment reports and general tree maintenance, we identified that the majority of problems our clients encountered could be attributed to poor nursery practices.
“Before selecting quality trees you need to select a quality nursery,” he added.
Tree Sales focuses on developing trees that are selfsupporting, not held up on stakes, have quality, fibrous root systems, with all trees having one main dominant leader and that are formatively pruned with no bark inclusions or co-dominants.
The nursery’s trees are propagated on site with direct seeding into either 1.5 or 8 litre air pruning containers, with no tube stock used during propagation allowing the main radical (tap root) to travel down 200mm to 300mm so that fibrous lateral roots can establish.
As a result, this develops into supporting structural roots for the tree.
Once the tree has established in the air pruning container it will then be potted up into one of Tree Sales’ 40 litre to 45 litre air pruning pots and grown on to a quality advanced tree.
“During the whole process from propagation right through to the advanced stage our trees are hardened off to local climatic conditions including temperatures ranging from minus four degrees to more than 44 degrees,” Mr Kramer explained.
“Trees that are exposed to different uniform stresses are, in most cases, more structurally stable, vigorous trees and will adapt well to most landscape conditions.
“All trees are true to type with good health and structure and absent of any pest or disease,” he said.
With the couple both holding Diplomas in Arboriculture and Environmental Sustainability, it is easy to see why Tree Sales is leading the way in producing quality advanced trees that are structurally sound and have advanced air pruning production methods.
