Production Capacity

Forrest Nursery operates four separate nurseries:


  • Forrest Nursery ‘Hillsborough’– Donnybrook

  • Forrest Nursery 'Pinchers Brook' – Donnybrook

  • Boyanup Botanical - Boyanup

  • Trees Direct – Darwin

The two Donnybrook nurseries and the Boyanup nursery have a current combined seedling production capacity of in excess of 10 million seedlings, and the Darwin nursery has a further 9 million seedling capacity.

The infrastructure at the nurseries have been designed with an in-built proficiency for rapid expansion of seedling production so as a result, Forrest Nursery has the capability to supply seedling demand for a rapidly growing industry.

Forrest Nursery currently employs approximately 20 permanent staff across the sites and up to 40 itinerant staff depending on seasonal needs.

The nurseries are located in thriving horticultural or rural areas that attract and provide large capacity accommodation for travellers so a ready supply of short term and immediate labour is available.

Forrest Nursery takes care in providing its staff with a safe workplace and complies with the Occupation, Heath and Safety regulation and all other relevant laws.
