There are fields of multi-stems, including specimen trees and shrubs and ‘designer’ trees including cube-headed, pleached, parasol and architectural shaped trees in a variety of forms. We also offer instant hedging and archways, single specimens for focal points and courtyards and an extensive selection of impact trees for larger projects.

The benefit of growing trees in containers is that it becomes possible to find and plant quality British trees all year round.
