Heritage Tree Trail

Greytown is noted for its many large trees, follow the trail map. Greytown celebrated the very first arbour day on July 3rd 1890. The huge Eucalyptus regnans outside St Luke’s Church was one of 12 seedlings the first to be introduced to the Wairarapa, which were carried over in a wooden wheelbarrow in 1856 by Samuel Oats for Charles Carter of Carterton. However while Samuel was resting in the Rising Sun Hotel 3 of the seedlings were removed and planted around Greytown. This tree now has a girth of approximately 13m, a span of 30m and a height of 40m, the biggest gum tree in NZ and is over 150 years old and the sole survivor and a Greytown icon.
