Mitre 10 MEGA Nelson Helping Hands

Privilege to be involved with the Mitre 10 MEGA Nelson Helping Hands to put a bit of life back into the Tahunanui community centre playground. Every little bit counts and it's so awesome to see the community pull together to make these projects come to life. Great work!

One loooong day. What a team. Mitre 10 MEGA Helping Hands at Tahunanui Community Centre. We painted and built and gardened till we dropped. 7am till 7pm. What an amazing bunch of people. Still a wee way to go. Kevin, Vaughn, Steve, Nick, Amber, Adrian, Leann, Sophie, Kaye, excellent work. Bryan Hemi turned up from Nelmac to pitch in and Vern Walker came down for moral support as well- saw the mighty Holden Colorado towing 2.7 tonne of tractor and trailer - it just ate it- best all round contractors ute around. Still got a massive bark mountain to move!!! If you're good on a rake or barrow we could do with you tomorrow!!!

Parks Week

This week is parks week running 10th March - 18th March. Get out there and explore all these fantastic gardens we have around our beautiful city. If you're in one of these parks, take a photo of your activity and post it to Nelson City Council page to go into the draw to win $50 Nelmac nursery voucher. Nelmac takes pride in keeping these public assets looking great year round, thanks to our wonderful Greenspaces team!

Nelson's heritage trees

A significant job that Nelmac Arborists took on yesterday was the hair cut of one of Nelson's heritage trees down Nile St. The tree is a Sequoia Sempervirens more commonly known as a Californian Redwood. This tree is 133 years old, planted in 1884.

Our skilled team of Arborists gave this beauty a haircut to minimise the risk of falling branches in heavy winds which funnel from the Maitai Valley during stormy weather.
