Trees for Urban Locations

When selecting trees for urban locations there are a number of factors that need to be considered not least the ultimate size and spread of the tree. Assessments need to be made in respect of the trees hardiness and the prevailing soil type, its light and water needs, its pollution tolerance, limb strength and ornamental features.

We have selected some trees for urban locations from our nursery in Cork for you to choose from. Click on the links for more information
