You can view, tag and reserve trees now and during the Summer for Autumn/Winter planting. Introduced from America in 1750 this is widely regarded as the most attractive of all the native trees from the States. Pyramidal when young it can resemble Quercus palustris in shape and habit and certainly rivals it for autumn colour when its foliage turns magnificent reds oranges and yellows. The dark glossy green leaves are narrowly oval and can reach 15cm in length. They do not tolerate lime soils so please bear this in mind if you choose one.

  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. The native English Yew is a tree of many mystical and religious associations. Incredibly long lived the oldest reported is in Llangernyw Wales and is estimated to be 4000 years old with a circumference of 16 metres. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, UK, we have some Yew 1m tall to 2.5m tall in 55-100 litre pots available now. The trees capacity for regeneration is outstanding; especially considering it is a conifer. A medium tree of conical appearance its hard wood can support this evergreen to a great age. Often used for hedging it also makes a fine specimen tree. Very good for parks and gardens. All parts of the tree are poisonous. It can grow on highly calcareous or highly acidic soils if there is good drainage. We stock these in both bush form and clear stem. Mature height: 7-12m Mature spread; 5-10m Further product information at the link below:- https://www.barchampro.co.uk/store/products/taxus-baccata Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk
  4. From 1st September 2019 we will have the following varieties of Oak available in various sizes at the Barcham Trees nursery - all grown in accordance with our Biosecurity Policy. The trees have been harvested from the fields at our 350 acre nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK and are maturing in their white light pots, available to view, tag and reserve now for Autumn 2019 planting. Quercus:- ilex palustris petraea robur rubra turneri pseudoturneri Oak trees offered for sale will become scarce in the UK market place as the import ban by DEFRA on oak trees imported from The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, announced on 12th July 2019, has an effect on supply. Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk
  5. ! ! No more Quercus imports from the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany…..press release Friday 12th July 2019 from DEFRA.!! Tighter restrictions on oak tree imports to come into force. Strengthened measures on the import of most species of oak into England are to be introduced to protect native trees from the threat of the tree disease Oak Processionary Moth (OPM). The bolstered measures will only permit imports of certain oak trees, including:- · Those from OPM free countries. · Those from designated pest free areas including Protected Zones (PZ) - an area of the European Union declared free of OPM. · Those that have been grown under complete physical protection for their lifetime. This Statutory Instrument (SI) – which is due to be introduced in Parliament shortly– builds on measures introduced in August 2018 and applies to all oak trees, except cork oak, over a certain size. The restrictions will cover both imports from overseas and the movement of trees from areas of the country where OPM is already present – in London and surrounding counties. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Cambridgeshire, UK, we have been enforcing a strict Biosecurity Policy for a number of years. Our trees are supplied free of OPM. Visit www.barchampro.co.uk
  6. 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

  8. 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

  10. Hello all Arb Talkers! With the increased numbers of new pest and diseases affecting our trees (both urban and woodlands) there is on going need for biosecurity practice to become adopted as standard practice throughout the Forestry and Arboricultural industries. In order to make this practical and proportionate we need to hear from all those that work in these industries; whether you are the Managing director of a large firm or a groundy working for a small team we want to hear what your thoughts are: The Forestry Commission have put together a short email survey - to find out what you think about biosecurity currently, how aware you are of the current guidance, and how you feel it does, or should, impact on your daily work. Do you have ten minutes to spare to complete the survey? It will help steer us on how best to communicate around the issue of biosecurity, and let us know what you need to follow biosecurity guidance more fully in the future. It’s an online survey, and can be completed anonymously here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FCbiosecurity
