NZONE Skydive Nursery

 

For the past few years NZONE has had it’s own Nursery located at it’s drop zone.

Native plants are nurtured and grown to a size where they can be planted to enhance the natural environment around our drop zones in Wanaka, Queenstown and Glenorchy.

In time the plants and tress will grow to off set some of the carbon emissions from the business.

Initially 200 native seedlings were purchased and then re potted to PB3 bags and placed in the nursery. They have subsequently been planted around our Drop Zones.

The plant types included:

Pittosporums

Flax

Tussock

Kohai

Hebes

Lancewoods

Beech trees

This year after planting all the stock we had around our drop zones we are back to Stage 1 again and this spring are propagating seeds in a greenhouse situated outside the hanger and loved and nurtured by the ground crew. The goal is to propagate around 300 seeds to seedling stage.

 Greenhouse 2

Stage 2 will be to have the seedlings spend some time and mature in the nursery.

Stage 3 will be to re pot to PB3 bags and then grow in the nursery to a size where they are suitable for planting.
