Piante MATI Pistoia was founded in 1909 as a dynamic family-owned company. It maintained high-quality production using traditional methods while simultaneously being innovative – just like today.
In cultivation nurseries, research is carried out regularly, both independently as well as in collaboration with various universities and research centers, to select new varieties in addition to finding new technologies and innovative products that can increase the quality and range of cultivated plants offered.
In the four production nurseries, located in different areas on the Pistoia plain, cultivation techniques appropriate to each species are applied to the crops, each oriented towards sustainability. Some plants are grown in the ground according to traditional nursery-industry practices; others are grown in technological containers for ready availability as well as to guarantee a strong root system.
Thanks to its hundred-year-old history, Mati 1909 has for years selected trees plantations and individual trees of various sizes and qualities called “specimens“. The company specializes in deciduous and coniferous trees varying in height from 2 to 12 meters, screening shrubs and bushes for natural barriers, roses, Mediterranean plants, citrus fruits grown in terracotta pots according to the art of Renaissance gardeners, ornamental shrubs and many other plants to be used in constructing gardens, public green areas, and landscapes.
