    Hi there,
    do you have any kahikatea for sale? I am looking for 20 to 30 – ideally bigger than RX90 – to go into a site near Lincoln.

    Hi Annelies,
    After 8 years waiting we are finally rebuilding in CHCH although we now live in Okains Bay. The house has corten cladding so I would like lancewoods that are toothed and sword like and not grow too big as they are in a plot rather than on the boundary.
    I would like to order 20 lancewoods and 20 minature black flaxes. The house should be completed by May 2020.
    I am not sure what procedure would suit you. We have space here in Okains Bay if you have stock, however, I am happy to order now and pick up whenever.
    I could bring my plan if you have time and interest to advise.
    Thank you.
