Need help with tree choices!

Recommended Posts

Brilliant just asked the 'boss' and she said the Alders look really good and exactly what we are looking for! Last piece of advice - it seems like there are lots of options with the Alders - is one particular string faster growing, or grows taller etc? Or is it a case of choose the one with the nicest colour leaves and get it? Thanks again.

All Alders are quick growing if planted properly in the right conditions.

One word of caution with Alders - especially if planting when 'mature'.

 

Depending on the variety - they can produce an absolute mass of suckers if the roots are disturbed.

 

Beautiful trees though they are - we planted some 10 years ago and it's been a constant battle...

Now that is a BEAUTIFUL tree!! Are they fast growing? And do they lose leaves in winter? Assuming by the sheep they are okay for animals!! :-)
