The aims of the nursery are:
- To disseminate technically sound advice (i.e. species to soil type, establishment methods etc.).
- To produce vigorous seedlings for sale to the public, and for distribution to research projects, Landcare and other community groups or organisations, private rural landholders, government departments and agencies, and home gardeners.
The propagation programs use only best quality seed for the best available provenances.
Where possible, provenances will be matched with planting sites, with regard to soil type and slope position.
