Kind words from our clients

We have been undertaking an extensive waterway fencing and native planting programme at our drystock property in the Bay of Plenty over the last 3 years. After previously working with other companies, we engaged Kauri Park last winter to supply and establish 25,000 plants. Our experience with Kauri Park has been second to none. All the staff are extremely professional and passonate about providing a top class product, from planning through to delivery and establishment. I unreservedly recommend Kauri Park to anyone undertaking a planting project.

We discovered Kauri Park Nurseries when we were looking for plants for our native revegetation project. We realised that being able to source all our plants from a single nursery was ideal. Kauri Park Nurseries not only provided all our plants, but they also organised the planting team, making our project much simpler than we had imagined. We have developed a friendly working relationship with the people at Kauri Park Nurseries that will take us forward into the future.

We approached Kauri Park about planting out 6ha of native trees, they were recommended by Cato Bolam as the guys to use for native planting. They organized the planting, 34,000 trees were planted in 10 days, a fantastic gang of guys that worked hard from first thing in the morning until dark. We have had a fantastic strike rate of over 90%. We are really pleased with the result and I’d definitely recommend them for anyone else thinking about doing a planting.

After deciding to plant out the marginal areas of our farm that were not profitable for farming, we asked around and ended up choosing to work with Kauri Park after they impressed us with their dedication to communication. Early in the season we got in (amongst the torrential weather) and planted 55,000 plants over 12 hectares of marginal areas around the edges of the farm. Kauri Park has been really good to work with, its been a good project all round.

I just wanted to say how much we have appreciated Kauri Park’s service and support throughout the 2017 planting season on the Huntly Expressway Project. Kauri Park front footed potential problems, dealt very quickly with the inevitable last minute delivery issues, and generally provided outstanding service delivering what I wanted when I needed it. This project has given us some challenging places to get plants to and the delivery guys were a pleasure to deal with, nothing was ever an issue for them.

Kauri Park played an instrumental role in the success of this project (Cambridge bypass). Our communications , whether with Management , Dispatch , or Delivery Drivers were always warm and friendly , and our specific delivery requirements were well labelled and accurately counted . This , along with early deliveries , allowed fast and efficient unloading , and good production from our planting team

Dave Goodley (HEB Landscapes – project coordinator)

 

I would like to recommend Kauri Park as an excellent supplier of good quality plants for any large or small project.  They were responsive, delivery was punctual and friendly, plant quality was excellent and correspondence was superb.  Any issues were sorted straight away  thus customer service was fantastic. 

Kelly Brown (Recreational Services – projects coordinator)

 

Upon award of the Brylee Reserve Wetland and Stream Naturalisation project in 2016 HEB Construction engaged Kauri Park as the sole supplier of all greenstock supply to the project for the planting season of 2017. Throughout the course of the project cycle Kauri Park were able to justify on a regular basis exactly why they were HEB Constructions preferred choice of supplier. Constant updates on stock growth and general health, high quality/ consistent stock supplied, and faultless logistics to get the stock to site made life easy for all. Andrew Cashmore’s willingness to engage in communication between both HEB Construction and Morphum  Environmental  Ltd provided a transparent and open line to appease  all stakeholder requirements as they presented. The subsequent growth onsite despite rather interesting conditions is a testament to the quality of product that was provided. HEB Construction look forward to working with Kauri Park in the future on many projects of this same nature.

Hayden Sefonte (HEB Construction – project manager)

 

Kauri Park is an excellent company to deal with. Whether it be providing competitive quotes for tenders, taking orders, or delivering plants to site, Kauri Park understands the importance of meeting deadlines and providing top quality service and products.

Paul Matthews (Mace Contractors – estimator/project manager)

 

As I have said for a long time Kauri Park are a hard act to follow, from initial request for pricing and availability the Kauri Park team are efficient timely and able to work in with multiple complex requests. Confirmed orders are always delivered when required and on time and we really value the professionalism with which this is handled with. The actual plant stock is always of high calibre and we have had great success utilising Kauri Park stock on a range projects over the upper North Island. Invoicing and after sales response is professional and reliable and the team always helpful if we have any queries. Thanks again for your efforts over the last year.

Tuskan Sherson (Modern environments – director)

 

We have had an ongoing working relationship with Kauri Park Nurseries for several years. It has been a pleasure to deal with Vern, Phil and their team throughout this time. We have recently taken a large consignment and are in the process of completing the planting. The first trees of our original purchase from KPN are now well established and quite large, requiring no maintenance. They have transformed what were weed infested gullies and degraded wetlands into nature reserves abundant with birdlife. This is in no small way attributed to the sound planting advice of KPN, their attention to detail and choosing the most suitable plants for particular areas. KPN have always carried out the planting to a high standard and supplied vigorous stock that perform, compete well against weeds and withstand adverse conditions. We look forward to dealing with KPN again next season to continue with our planting that is made possible by their quality, cost effective and reliable service.

Chris Balle (Balle Bros Group – director)

 

We have used Kauri Park Nurseries since AMA’s inception. The plants supplied have always been true to form and sufficient size, enhancing the visual quality of our projects. The plants supplied have been good hardy plants which suit the harsh motorway environments and can fend for themselves once put in the ground. We have always been well serviced by the KPN plant supply team and the efficient plant delivery systems ensure our tight project programs are not hindered. We intend to continue building our professional relationship with the KPN team and would be happy to refer any potential customers to them.
