Trees

The following trees are normally grown/kept in stock through the winter months.

Sizes:
Most of the following trees are around 1.2m tall either 2/3 year old barerooted transplants or are grown in our unique large sized cells for straightforward delivery and subsequent establishment.

In the event of plants growing in excess of 1.5m, the tips are usually pruned to about 1.3m where appropriate, in order to post economically. This produces a typical half standard head in the year of planting out or can be easily singled to a straight leader.

Prices:
Most Parkland Trees grown by us are a very reasonable £7 each for approx 1.2m seedlings or £13 for approx 1.2m ‘1 year’ grafted/budded ornamentals.

Some trees marked * are subject to availability/season or prices TBC as we do not grow these as mainline stock. Please contact us to purchase.

We often hold a lot of stock (varieties and sizes) not on the website, please contact us for up to date details.
