We were recently delighted to host a delegation of visitors from Singapore, as part of the recent Australian Institute of Horticulture Conference, held here in Perth.

I very much enjoyed being a guest presenter at the Conference and equally pleased to respond to a request to meet up with the delegates from Singapore at our Tree Farm in the Swan Valley area. The delegates were a mix of business owners, landscape technicians, representatives from government organisations and academics.

Our Tree Farm is gaining significant interest as we continually look to raise the standards of the tree stock that we deploy onto our projects across WA.

We're trying to help address the issues faced by Local Government, Developers and Landscape Architects where re-occuring failures in tree installations are often the result of price-driven purchase decisions from third party suppliers. More often than not, it ends up being more expensive to constantly replace failing trees rather than invest in carefully managed quality stock from the outset. This is something our visitors wanted to see and hear about. We look forward to ongoing dialogue and potential commercial activity with them.
