About us

Who we are

Arthur Maait

Arthur migrated to Australia from Northern Lebanon in 1962 and went straight to work as a stonemason and gardener by day and at Bonds cotton mills by night.

For the next 15 years he worked in various areas of the Horticultural industry. Finding suitable quality stock for landscaping was difficult, so Arthur decided to start growing the plants himself.


In 1975 he bought the Dural site and founded Alpine Nurseries, which quickly became one of the leading nurseries in Australia. Arthur decided to specialise in growing and transplanting Advanced and Mature trees and Palms, so in 1986 he established Alpine Treemovals.

Arthur has been integral to the NGIA and NGINA, being a Life Member and Past President.


Morrie Maait

Maroun (Morrie) grew up in the nursery business established by Arthur; he was identifying plants by their botanical names as soon as he could talk. To this day he is a self-confessed plant geek.

He has worked in the industry for over 17 years in various roles: Nursery, Hard and Soft Landscaping, and Design.


Although busy with his career and raising a young family, he graduated from Ryde TAFE in 2007 with a Diploma in Horticulture & Landscape Design and is a CNP (Certified Nursery Professional).

Maroun was awarded the NGINA Young Leader Award for 2012, is a director on the NGINA board and Chairperson of NextGen.


Normie Khamis

Normie is the leading hand in the nursery and has worked at Alpine Treemovals for over three years.

With a background in Carpentry and Landscaping, he has bought very useful problem solving skills to the nursery.


In addition to his busy work life, Normie is currently in his final year of studying Landscaping at Ryde TAFE


Jason Maait

Jason, another of Arthur's sons, is a key member of the team, working on a part time basis for Alpine Treemovals for the past 8 years.


Jason has specialised in Irrigation and has been extremely active in the nursery's recent renovations to the irrigation system and planting beds.


Jennifer Maait

Jennifer (Morrie's wife) in addition to being Official Catering Manager for the many functions and tours held here at Alpine Treemovals, has recently taken over responsibilities in the Accounts Department.


All this, while being Super-Mum to the next generation of Alpine Treemovals green team.


Emeley Maait

Emeley (Arthur's wife) has been Alpine Treemovalís secretary for the past 8 years and is normally the first point of contact when you call.
