  1. Just fill the area under the tree that is free from concrete/tiles/asphalt. it's going to be used by locals in their home gardens. Thank you for your support.
  2. Hello 👋 I stumbled across your forum and was hoping for a bit of advice? We just moved to a rural rented property where we plan to stay for around 5 years. We need to fence an area of the garden at the front (approx 30 metres, easy access, one corner, soft ground) due to a road as we have dogs. Our landlord is happy for us to do whatever but may well want us to remove the fence at the end of the tenancy, I guess depending on how nice it looks, not sure on the criteria! We need it to be about 3ft high, not spoil the views and keep the dogs in, though they are not really escape artists but one is quite small, so no huge gaps. Need to be able strim the grass easily too. Would stock fencing or picket fencing be the best option? Or is there something else? Have to consider price a bit as its only 'semi permentant' so to speak and ease of removal if required. No concreting etc. We already have stock fencing around some of the property, so that would seem fitting. But would picket fencing be cheaper/easier/look nicer? What sort of price would I be looking at? Any ideas and suggestions welcome. Thanks for reading if you made it this far 😀

  5. 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 [email protected]
  6. 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 [email protected]

  11. Hi, I am looking for feedback on tree placement that will frame my house while providing shade and screen. For starters, I’m thinking about removing the two exterior Pine trees, keeping the one in the center. Second, I was considering the addition of a dwarf Japanese Maple on the South side about 15’ from South Corner of the house. Finally, adding an Oak Regal Prince on the North side about 15’ from the North Corner OR pleached Hornbeams along the North property line. I’ve attached 3 current pictures as well as a proposed picture that I created using landscaping software. I wasn’t able to include the view of the Pine tree, but it provides a little idea of the new tree placement. Any feedback or advice on the tree placement, types of trees, etc. would be greatly appreciated. FYI - I live in zone 5-6 and the front of my home faces West; dimensions: 36' from house to line of Pine trees. 60' property width (left property line to house 10', front of house 21', house to right property line 29') Thank you, Marc

  13. I see this particular sub-forum of Arbtalk is "for those wishing to diversify into landscaping". As someone who has run a paving & landscaping company for 18 years, I'd be happy to offer any advice I can give. More useful perhaps, I also help run Landscape Hub, (a forum for those in or associated with the landscape and horticultural industries). We have a wealth of knowledge there in both landscaping and garden / grounds maintenance, so any questions I can't answer, (there might be many!), I can always ask Landscape Hub members for assistance. Similarly if I see any Arb questions on the Hub that can't be answered, I'll definitely be referring them to Arbtalk. Gary
