I've got lots of native dogwood (well that's what I think they are) trees popping up in my garden. Free to anyone who wants to come out to Hilderthorpe and dig/pull some up. :)

I should have noted that they are not all tiny - some are around 2' tall (that's feet not metres).

And there are some kowhai, too ...

Living on a 7 acre property near Oamaru I currently have 5 wonderful Standardbred horses, 8 alpacas, 6 former battery hens, 1 labrador and 8 cats. I eat only plant based food and love trying new plant based recipes. Retired from the paid workforce in December 2019 and have never been busier!!

Ok ... I'll pick you. But I'd be happier if I could find someone to 'pick' some of the little trees otherwise they'll be heading on a trip to the compst bin :( .

I've just found out that the seedlings/juvenile trees are actually lacebark/hoheria not dogwoods

Sorry, I wouldn't have a clue (natives aren't my thing) but the parent trees are huge - 6 or 7 metres tall. Having said that, they are probably 50 or more years old.

I've googled the 2 types and I'm guessing mine are augustifolia- they seem to be common on the South Island.
