Nelmac’s Nelson-based Whakatu nursery annually produces over 300,000 eco-sourced native plants of the Nelson/Tasman area. Already these plants have transformed and restored large areas of hillside, sand dunes, wetlands and tidal zones.
Eco-sourced plants are those that occur naturally within a geographic area. They are ideally suited to cope with local conditions and natural predators and are essential to maintaining ecological balance. By using eco-sourced plants we are employing the best plants for the job – whether that be for wind protection, erosion control, water quality, dune restoration or reforestation. Eco-sourced plants sit naturally in the environment – providing aesthetic value, habitat and a future resource.
Customers increasingly want assurance that the goods they source and the companies they deal with are committed to sustainable business practices and the environment. In this regard Nelmac’s reputation is sterling and the businesses we work with recognise the value we provide in delivering future-focussed solutions that meet their own needs – as well as their customers’ expectations.
