Why Choose an Auckland
Palm Centre Palm?

Our palms suffer very little stress when transplanted. This is because the root system is mostly contained in the bag, once the bag is removed the roots will spread quickly in their new environment.

Container grown palms are much easier to transplant than field grown speciments - there is no need for heavy machinery to dig the rootballs, they can be easily transported without the need for HIAB trucks. This also makes planting much more cost effective.

We also have a selection of large field grown
specimens available if required.
