Over the last five years there has been considerable interest in more mature trees. John has done a great deal of research into the best methods of propagating, growing and keeping mature indigenous trees. Obviously these trees provide an instant impact when planted in the landscape and they are being used as street trees, park trees and in gardens.


As John researched, he identified the most important issue was the limitations of the rootball. In conventional pots the trees tended to coil their roots around inside the pot and incidentally had significant set back when planted. Using cutting edge technology in the form of
Rocket Pots the tree’s roots are encouraged to spread out laterally as well as down and air prune as a ball. When planted the tree is ready to send roots out in all directions and this helps establish the tree more quickly.
