CNI nursery to reopenOwhata Nursery in Rotorua, NZ is to re-open after a number of years lying fallow. Grant Hastings from Forest Nursery Consulting Ltd, based in Ngongotaha, has taken on the lease in association with the landowner’s, Owhata 2B and 7, Ahuwhenua Trusts. Hastings says the opportunity to consolidate the current business from 3 sites and the ability to increase production are all good news for Rotorua.
Hastings says “the nursery has the capacity for raising 14 million plants, radiata pine and eucalypt species. It will provide employment for the trusts iwi and other Rotorua locals. Being centrally located the nursery will be to service a large area in the North Island. The trusts are keen and enthusiastic supporters of the re-opening and I’m looking forward to a long term relationship that will bring benefits to them and the local people of Rotorua.”
