Choosing a Tree

Trees growing in a range of heights and widths, thus creating a variety of shapes. Some trees grow in a dense form. This means that although they are not tall, they occupy precious space in a garden whose owners don't have either the time, energy or knowledge to prune them. There are other trees which grow in a more tall and open shape; they easily provide shade, while only the trunk occupies personal space in the garden. Choosing a tree involves consideration of many factors including height, width, density and colour as well as the overall shape.

Foliage colours include shades of green, blue green, golden yellow and a range of red to bronze tones. Autumn colours vary from spectacular reds and burgundies to orange and through to golden yellows. Some species exhibit many colours at the same time during their autumn show. The unexpected vibrant bright pink tones of the Katsura are an autumn delight. When planning or adding to your garden, consider the colour palette to be viewed from your lounge / bedroom / kitchen windows.

About Us

Cascades Nursery is situated in Batlow, a small town at 800 metres elevation on the western side of the Snowy Mountains in NSW, and is owned and operated by husband and wife team - Manda and Ian McCorkindale. We are unique in the retail industry in  that we are not solely buying and selling plants - much of what we sell we actually grow, what we don't grow we source locally or from similar climatic regions, and then grow them on in the sun and wind and the frost to 'harden' them up. This allows us to be price competitive and also means that we can carry a range of trees virtually unseen in any single retail outlet. 

We offer a tree for every spot with advice to match.

Tough hardy trees to beautiful and tender. Available young in 20cm pots through to semi advanced and advanced trees.

Ourlargest containers/bags are portable and can be handled without needing to hire specialized machinery.
