Three Nikau
Approximately 70 Years old

Three mature nikau from a rural property in South Taranaki, where they had to make way for a new milking shed. Most nikau on farms are cleared along with the bush, but these had been kept by express wish of the current owner’s grandparents.

The South Taranaki form is a marked improvement on the Northland/Auckland form, especially in terms of tidiness, which is important with nikau. Siblings of these palms were used in civil landscapes in Karangahape Rd and Vector Arena.

This group, $36,000. Individually $14,000.
