Source trees from a UK nursery with a Biosecurity Policy

With DEFRA announcing a ban on imports into the UK of Quercus from The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, a timely reminder to source trees from a UK nursery with a Biosecurity Policy which can demonstrate an audit trail on every tree offered for sale.   At Barcham Trees we have been banging this drum for years.  Imports from Europe have been made available to the Landscape Industry to offer the variety demanded but these imports need to be grown on in the UK, acclimatised and quarantin

Acer Griseum - what a lot this tree has to offer!

Look at all this tree has to offer!   No wonder at the Barcham Trees nursery we always sell out of this one every year.   Available from September 2019 onwards, we have new stock of 8-10cm and 16-18cm girth trees but no more than 50 trees over the 2 sizes.   The trees are ready to view and you can reserve trees now to save disappointment later on.

Do you love it or hate it?!

I have a bit of a 'marmite' situation going on with this tree, can't make up my mind if I love it or hate it!  Does anyone else have a view?   I think I like the freshness and habit of the young tree but feel the mature tree is rather lollopy.   At the Barcham Trees nursery we have some 40-50cm tall trees in 20 litre pots available from September 2019.   Sometimes referred to as the Chile Pine, Araucaria araucana is also a native of Argentina.   This ancie

Pinus Sylvestris fastigiata grown at Barcham Trees, Cambridgeshire, UK

Pinus sylvestris fastigiata - A wonderfully columnar form of Scots Pine, so tight in habit, that one has to get quite close to indentify it.   There are some nicely maturing specimens in the conifer garden at the Harlow Carr arboretum.   The needles appear almost blue when young giving it a highly ornamental feel.   Introduced circa 1856, it is naturally occurring in Europe.   It can reach over 10 metres tall if it isn’t hampered by snow and ice build up w

Which tree bears this flower?
