Christmas Tree Hire

Bringing Christmas Magic to the Bay of Plenty. The process of selecting and decorating a Christmas tree is a cherished family tradition. Keep the tradition alive in an eco-conscious way and minimise the environmental impact of single-use Christmas trees.

Renting a living Christmas tree from us means it won’t end up at the landfill when the presents are all unwrapped and festivities are wrapped up. Our fresh, potted and pruned living Christmas trees are available to rent this festive season.

New Zealand’s Finest Christmas Tree Hire

We rent Christmas trees for a greener festive season. If you need a Christmas tree in Tauranga and surrounding areas, we are here for you. Bring a potted Christmas tree home this year; a gift your family can enjoy year after year. After Christmas, we can either collect your tree or you can drop it back to us, and we will nurture it until the next year. If you wish, you can hire the same tree again.

Christmas Trees

Sustainability meets festivity, renting a living Christmas tree is a convenient and environmentally friendly way to celebrate the festive season.

Here are the varieties of trees we have available:

We Have a Wide Range of Quality Christmas Trees Available

From forest to festivity: choose a sustainable Christmas tree. We care for all our trees in Tauranga, where they are potted, hand-trimmed and fertilised. The eco-friendly, practical and convenient way to celebrate the Christmas holidays is with a fresh, living Christmas tree.

A New Kind of Shepherd

We provide seasonal Christmas tree hire to homes and businesses across Tauranga. With Tree Shepherds, you’ll never need to worry about finding the perfect tree again. Our Christmas trees are locally grown, potted and trimmed with the option of adding lights or baubles for your convenience.


“My wife Kaitlin and I started Tree Shepherds in 2022 as a practical and sustainable alternative to traditional Christmas trees. We wanted to offer a living potted tree option that can be returned to the Christmas tree farm after the festive season. After doing some digging, we realised there was a lack of available options in New Zealand. We created Tree Shepherds to bring this innovative idea of Christmas tree rental to life. Our goal is to bring living, potted Christmas trees to homes and businesses in Tauranga and the wider Bay of Plenty, creating a tree that grows with your family and promoting sustainability. As Tree Shepherds grows, we plan to rent native New Zealand trees for businesses, office spaces and events, fostering a greener future where Christmas magic and environmental responsibility grow together.”
