The owner and founder of Habitat, Dean Kingham, started the mature tree nursery in 1991. Today, the nursery has around 100 000 large and mature containerised trees – both indigenous and exotic ranging from young 20 litre containerised trees up to huge mature 40+ year old trees in massive 4000 litre containers. With Habitat, a tree is not just a tree. For trees in Cape Town you know who to contact!
Whether you are looking to buy a feature tree for small spaces or mature trees to plant in a landscape garden estate, we’ve got it all. Picture your tree with its silhouette against a wall or the African sky! Choices are either an indigenous South African tree or an exotic tree, evergreen or deciduous (losing its winter leaves).

We offer a wide a varied selection of indigenous and exotic trees, both large and small – anyone is welcome to visit the nursery and take a look.
