Growing tomorrow's tree today

“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” Chris Maser, Forest Primeval: The Natural History of an Ancient Forest

Perth’s best kept secret. Ellenby Tree Farm is considered to be the forerunners in advanced trees throughout Western Australia. We use the most advanced methods and technology to produce premium quality trees.

These techniques have been refined to reflect Western Australia’s growing conditions which are vastly different to the Eastern States. This has placed Ellenby Tree Farm at the pinnacle of advanced tree growing in Australia. Constant research around the world has seen Ellenby Tree Farm adapt and improve what has been learnt from competitors and allies.  After years of infield and scientific research and experience we have learnt of the importance of a perfect root system. To achieve this we are growing our trees with a combination of techniques which include growing trees in the ground and using specialised root maker pots. Now using the ‘Rootmaker system’ ETF is the only tree farm/nursery in Australia to be credited as a certified platinum rootmaker grower.

Probably the most commonly planted of all Crab Apples, predominantly for its excellent spring floral display, this small growing tree also features very good autumn colour. Broad spreading with a rounded crown. Slow growing in the early years.
