Salient is an excellent design with a fresh approach for the ever-changing Web. Integrated with Gantry 5, it is infinitely customizable, incredibly powerful, and remarkably simple.



The Tree Trust emphasises native plants in its projects.

For some detail on the native trees we use, click on the link to the Department of Conservation's  very informative website.

We are not dogmatic about planting natives, and will happily plant exotics and cultivars where the location calls for them.  For instance, much of Lola Silcock Park is planted in cherries and maples, and there are several fruit trees on the Meadow Walk.  Scattered through various projects, there are citrus and bay trees, and in Ann's Patch there is that lovely autumnal arch of golden elms.

Nevertheless, because of all the seed we gather, and cuttings we propagate, we use more eco-sourced material than might be supposed.

Spring is here and the Daffodils are blooming.

Daffodil Planting


Arbor Day 1998 marked the planting of Daffodils around the town. With support from Council and Tree Trust Volunteers a number of areas were planted out around this time, stsrting with Hamilton Road on the main approach to Cambridge (left) and the eastern approaches to the town, by the Karapiro Stream Bridge.


Other plantings have been made from time to time, as CTT members go around the town and find a suitable place for bulbs. In 2009 a grant of $1000 from the Cambridge Christmas Committee and funds from the Tree Trust, enabled a number of other plantings in town. Over 9000 Bulbs were supplied from Clendon Daffodils in Gordonton.

There are on-going problems with mowing, but the daffodils seem to survive.


Council placed Fenceline signs to indicate the presence of these daffodil beds, but over time they were ignored or fell apart. In 2021 new signs were produced by the Tree Trust it is hoped these will go some way to protecting the beds whilst the daffodils are growing. Our Thanks to “Grumpys signs” for the production of and their contribution to these.

 1. Hamilton Rd/Payne Park

The most extensive display is in the park and on the road verge. Over the years mowing as they grew has knocked them back, it is hoped extra attention in 2021 will bring them back to their original numbers.
