Strong, often salt laden winds present a challenge when selecting trees for coastal locations. Trees that are grown in a coastal climate don’t tend to reach the same size as those inland and often have a windswept shape.
We have selected here some trees in our nursery in Cork for you to choose from. Click on the links for more information.
