Murrays Nurseries was originally established in 1961 by Patrick’s father Maurice Murray, who returned from the Rotorua Forest Research Institue Nursery to start one of New Zealands first private forestry nurseries. Maurice started the business on the southern side of Woodville before moving the operation to family owned land on Sowry Road. Today the business incorporates 29ha of land and 9ha of leased land.
In the past Murrays Nurseries has grown a variety of products, when Patrick took over the business it focused on Pinus radiata seedlings. In the first year of business in 2012 he produced 5.8 million Pinus radiata seedlings. In 2023 Murrays Nurseries harvested 15,733,000 million seedlings, with a team of four full time employees and up to 30 seasonal staff.
The excellence in pine stock quality and high production output is due to the unique soils, Patricks extensive 40 years' experience and his valued team, providing industry leading knowledge.
Murrays Nurseries has placed great importance on environment and fi nancial sustainability of the business through modernising industry best practice and developing the latest production technologies. This puts the nursery at the forefront of innovation and development.
