About us

Our Story

The Spreading Tree (TST) is a family-owned business dedicated to culture and arts. Our main inspiration derives from the history of the Lim family, the nature, and the cultural diversity of our beautiful city - Auckland, New Zealand. Our philosophy is to bring people closer to nature and spread cultural knowledge. 

TST Lifestyle, based in Titirangi, is a division of TST which specialises in providing tours, retreats and workshops. Through our variety of events, we wish to promote inner wellness, and also to showcase the unique bush living environment in West Auckland.
