Screening out the rest of the world with new tree planting is adding to the feeling of privacy at Tui Hills. In all, about a dozen trees are being planted this week, some as high as 4 metres.  It’s a tricky job getting them placed just right, so there will be double lines of trees in some areas. In other parts of the grounds mature bushes are being planted to fill gaps where the dead wood was cleared out.
