  1. UrbanVirons in Adelaide, South Australia are looking for skilled/experienced climbers and EWP operators to join our team. Our work is diverse ranging from large dismantles to formative pruning. We provide excellent rates of pay and help with long term visa's for the right applicants. Please send CV's to jamesd@urbanvirons.com.au Escape the UK weather and come work out here in Oz.
  2. What should you have at the top of your Shopping List when you are sourcing trees from any UK nursery?! Answer:- Ask the Supplier for a copy of their Biosecurity Policy. They should be able to give you a unique reference number per tree from which an audit trail will verify from where the tree was sourced and how long it has been in the UK. Trees imported into the UK should have at least one full year - all the growing seasons - on a UK nursery to ensure any dormant pests and diseases are eradicated before they are despatched and planted in our glorious UK landscape. Here is a link to a PDF of the Barcham Trees Biosecurity Policy which you can save to your computer for future reference. https://www.barchampro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Barcham-Biosecurity-for-web.pdf
  3. This cultivar dates back to at least 1838 but still remains quite uncommon. Acer cappadocicum Rubrum is a medium to large tree with a rounded habit. The young dark red leaves turn green and then back to red gold and yellow in autumn. This superb autumn colour lasts for many weeks. At the Barcham Trees nursery we have some 10-12cm girth trees in 45 litre pots available now. Although best on moist well drained soil it is adaptable and flourishes in either full sun or light shade. It is best grown with a little shelter from strong winds. A good tree for avenues and verges but not good where soil becomes compacted. Mature height: 12-17m Mature spread: 8-15m Further product information at the link below:- https://lnkd.in/g_PEYuW Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk

  5. 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 quarantined before sale, to ensure any live or dormant pests and diseases are eradicated before despatch into our glorious UK landscape. At the link below is a PDF copy of our Biosecurity Policy which you can download and save to your computer for future reference. This is a useful guide to refer to from whichever nursery you source trees for planting in the UK. https://www.barchampro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Barcham-Biosecurity-for-web.pdf

  7. 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 which can cause it to fracture. However there are no such problems in the UK making this a fabulous choice for many aspects. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, we have some 1m-1.5m tall trees in 45 litre pots available from 1st September 2019. You can view and pre-order trees now for Autumn planting. Mature height: 7-12m Mature spread: 1-2m Further product details at the link below:- https://www.barchampro.co.uk/store/products/pinus-sylvestris-fastigiata Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk
  8. Do you know which tree produces this white 'urchin' looking flower? The tree has attractive grey green and cream patchwork bark. Its leaves are narrow and grey – green when matured and it is well suited as a specimen tree to provide lovely soft contrast in parks and large gardens. Evergreen. Mature height 12-17m. At the Barcham Trees nursery we have potted up 100 of these trees, 35-40cm tall in 5 litre pots, ready for planting from 1st September 2019. Let me know what you think it is!

  17. We are looking for a new team member to join us. Based in Canterbury Kent, we are looking for a new lead climber to come and complete a 3 man crew. The work you will be doing is mainly high end domestic work, there is a very small amount of contract commercial work but not too much. Of course here and there there is always going to be a wee bit of coni bashing and hedge work We cover the entire county of Kent and further afield for said commercial work. It'll be the usual drill, rock up (grab a brew), load up, get job sheet and away you go. Our kit is up to date and we'll looked after.
