OUR LIVE TREE FINDER HELPS YOU FIND YOUR PERFECT TREE FASTER.
When selecting Street trees 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 tree’s hardiness and the prevailing soil type, its light and water needs, its pollution tolerance, limb strength and ornamental features. Some species can cope better with urban conditions than others and it’s important to choose a species that can tolerate paving.
Urban trees that are suitable for narrow streets often naturally have a narrow upright crown shape, which means they are able to keep their natural habit over a long period. There are columnar trees whose width does not exceed three meters but whose height still contributes to the green landscape. These cultivars require very little pruning which makes them ideal terms of ongoing maintenance costs.
Some great examples here in the nursery include Acer campestre Elsrijk (Norway Maple), Carpinus betulus Fastigiata, (Upright Hornbeam) Corylus colurna (Turkish Hazel), Metaseqoia glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwood) and Quercus robur Fastigiata (Upright Oak).
Feel free to browse through our stock, we are always happy to talk about our trees. Visits to the nursery are welcome by appointment and are a great way to experience our trees for yourself.
