One of the things we truly believe in is to never stop planting and never stop growing. Over the last couple of months we have planted about 3000 x 20L, 2000 x 50L and 1000 x 100L trees.

Despite the drought, now is an excellent time for you to be planting as we are receiving small bouts of rain which means that we do NOT need to be watering our trees now. In fact, we at TreeCo have not watered the nursery in more than 2 months. By planting now, your trees will be acclimatizing to their new surroundings and need less water this coming summer. We have already been hardening off our trees off since November 2016 so planting NOW is essential.

Species proven to be all time winners during this time of year are Olea africana, Syzigium cordatum, and Syzigium guineese.
Please feel free to contact us for any help or advice needed at any stage of your landscaping projects.

Eye on the Weather

TreeCo News
As from November 2016, TreeCo started giving 20% less water; in February 2017, we went down another 20% and in March another 20%. So it’s been a total of 60% less water for our trees over the past couple of months. At this point, TreeCo waters only once a week, producing more hardy trees. We suggest you do the same.

Additionally, we recommend keeping an eye on the weather. If you plant trees now, they will be ready for winter's rainfall. Remember, global warming is very much a reality and the more trees we can plant, the better. Trees are a good investment for your future.
Touching Base with TreeCo

Over the course of this summer, TreeCo had a proud 20% drop in water consumption in December. But now, three months down the line, we are using between 50 and 60% less water than before. If you would like to implement similar water saving systems, please contact us.

Another positive outcome of the water restrictions has been that TreeCo trees are a lot hardier than we had originally anticipated, which means you can continue to look forward to planting healthy and robust TreeCo trees and shrubs.

Our sincerest apologies for the delay in getting this, TreeCo's first newsletter of the year, to you. We have been catching up on all our admin, which has been on a steady roll since we reopened earlier this month.

Jean and Rudi have been on the road constantly with deliveries which is good for business of course, but more importantly, good for the environment, and your gardens' growing success.

So many thanks to you, our clients for keeping the Cape green with TreeCo trees. With such a positive and busy start to the new year, we are really looking forward to 2017 and we wish you a prosperous new year too. Contact Rudi or Mireze directly for quotes or orders: 082 829 5543.

We would like to thank all of our long-standing and new loyal clients for their support this year. Our gratitude also goes out to our esteemed suppliers and everyone who ran projects and events for which we donated trees.

TreeCo has grown in so many ways; without you and our team, this would not have been possible. We are closed for the December holidays as of today and will re-open on the 10th of January 2017.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Rocking the Daisies with TreeCo

For those of you who were enjoying the splendorous sounds of Rocking The Daisies this year, you will have seen the 80 TreeCo trees we sponsored to the event, boogying there with you.

Cloof Wine Estate hosts around 25 000 festival goers each year, but the music fest is not what makes the estate famous, actually it's the delicious wines produced from their unirrigated bush vines that draws the crowds year round. Pruning vines is a calculated science as each snip produces a difference in foliage, photosynthesis and grape ripening.
6000 Reasons for Species Diversification

TreeCo News
A key component of a healthy urban forest, especially one on your estate, is tree species diversity. Tree diversity within an urban forest landscape provides functional, aesthetic benefits as well as biological and ecological advantages, the foremost of which is greater stability of the ecosystem you've created.

Our new range of about 6 000 x 20L trees will almost be ready for delivery this December, which means that when you increase your species diversity with TreeCo, you are automatically restoring the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning of your landscape
Mission Olives and Freerange Eggs

As Arbor Week draws to a close, TreeCo is busy saving 35 mature 50 year old Mission Olive trees. This conservation project is being done in collaboration with James the Freeranger who is setting up huge new coops to house his 22,000 chickens. Each tree will be put into bags, rehabilitated and then sold on to selected clients. Our aim is not only to encourage people to plant trees but to conserve them as well.

Heading into summer, we'll be acquiring 14,5k more trees and shrubs over the next few months as the expansion of TreeCo's nursery continues at full tilt. This is our biggest single acquisition yet so many thanks to all of our partners and clients for your ongoing support.

At TreeCo, we're always growing, and we keep our nursery fully stocked so that you can plant first class specimens all year round. You can even find some of South Africa's protected beauties in our nursery.

Playing the long game is, of course, a key element in running a successful nursery like ours. Looking ahead to the future, we've just finished planting 100 Syzygium guineense into 250l bags so that they'll be ready for sale in February 2017.

But these awesome evergreens are not the only new TreeCo additions which need time to grow and have their roots fill their growbags – our 20l production line area is now populated with 2500 new perfectly grown specimens. This area will eventually house 10 000 trees and shrubs ready for purchase because here at TreeCo, we are literally always growing. Watch us in progress on our Facebook page.

TreeCo would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal and wonderful clients that supported us during the last three months.  It’s been a great start to the new year. We actually upped our game about seven months ago and are pleased to announce that today we are supplying two of the industry giants with our top-notch trees. So a special thank you goes out to Johan Swanepoel from Arboreta Nurseries and Dean Kingham from Habitat Tree Nursery for their advice and guidance in making our product even better. Whoever said you can’t work along side your competitor?
