The article presents nursery specifications for native plants. The establishment success of nursery grown plants can be measured by the number of plants that have survived their first year in the field, are healthy, and have good prospects of continuing to grow with little or no further intervention. The key measurements included in forestry plant specifications is discussed as well as the effect of stock size on survival of nursery plants. The species and size specifications set for the Matawai Park is presented.
