Take a break – look at a tree. It reduces your stress levels

New Zealand’s native trees are sometimes passed over for flashy exotics, mostly because people haven’t seen natives in the full resilient splendour that is part of a native tree’s inheritance.

For instance, look at the fabulous relatively uncommon Ewekuri
(Streblus banksii)

Ewekuri is a beautiful upright tree growing up to 12m, and is as happy on the coast as it is in forested lowlands. This spreading-canopy native beauty grows steadily, reaching 3m within ten years. Carrying attractive green 4-9cm fine leaves, this Milk tree variety produces bright yellow flowers between September and November. It follows that splendid act with a bright red-orange show of small oval berries.

Ewekuri is dioecious, meaning male and female flowers are borne on separate trees. The tree is hardy and grows well from Nelson, north. It makes an excellent street tree, but is also willingly adapted to handsome hedging.

Ewekuri does best in deep fertile soil which drains well. It is a gratifyingly drought-resistant species once it has become well-established.

Because Ewekuri is reasonably uncommon, it’s a good choice when you’re looking for an elegant specimen tree or a statement planting with all the resilience required to flourish in the New Zealand environment.
