Calling all Council urban planners and arborists! Speciality Trees is opening its Benalla Production site to you exclusively for a day of informative and interactive discussion.

Email Share Tweet

After a busy calendar year of seminars, courses, and nursery forums with qualified speakers on growing systems, pruning, accreditation and research in and around the selection of well grown, climate appropriate material, we thought it was a good time to present what all this theory looks like in P R A C T I C E.

This December, Speciality Trees will open the doors of its newest production site Benalla in country Victoria and offer Council guests a detailed inspection of its stock, it's future plans for material and its growing philosophy between sites in light of different soils, heat and water. It is not so much an end view, but a developmental one, particularly as it relates to setting up long-term regional supply.

Why grow ornamental stock at Benalla? Will this change the palette of material produced? What are the benefits of in-ground production? How can councils benefit from our footprint in regional Victoria?


DATE: Tuesday 4th December 2018
WHERE: 1317 Mansfield Rd, Benalla 
TIME: 10am – 2pm. Lunch is provided
