  1. Nyssa Sylvatica - Black Gum, Tupelo - at the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK we have some 10-12cm girth trees in 55 litre pots ready for planting from 1st September 2019. 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. Mature height: 12-17m Mature spread: 6-10m Further product information at the link below:- https://www.barchampro.co.uk/store/products/nyssa-sylvatica Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk
  2. 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
  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
  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
  7. 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. Acer griseum is a fairly small tree, but a magnificent one. Originally from China and was introduced by Ernest Wilson in 1901. From an early age the bark peels to reveal cinnamon coloured under-bark. The paperbark maple is a truly stunning specimen, it has beautiful trifoliate leaves that have attractive reddish tints in the autumn. This maple does well in sun or partial shade and appreciates a sheltered position. Acer griseum does best in moist well drained soil and is not drought tolerant. Nutrient rich wet soil can inhibit autumn colour. A small growing tip - this lovely tree will generally frost out over winter giving the tree a very rounded habit. Mature height: 3-7m Mature spread: 4-5m Further product details at the link below:- https://lnkd.in/gEvJjxp Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk
  8. Here is a link to this week's Current Tree Availability List at the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK:- https://www.barchampro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Availability-List-09.07.19.pdf Trees field grown at our 350 acre nursery and harvested into white light pots.

  9. 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. 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!

  12. I am cleaning up my garden from all the snow damage and still have loads of conifers (and laurel) to cut down. I had an issue with taking green waste to our local depot because are vehicle is classed as "commercial" - 4x4 with a cab. We are waiting on a license for this vehicle but are only allowed 6 visits a year with this vehicle to dump waste and it will take more than that. In addition, my brother won't always be around to move the chained sawed trees for me. I cannot afford to bring in chipping services as there is so much to do. Soon as we get through one lot there is more to do. Can anyone advise if there are any tree services companies who would like the wood for free to chip or log? I am in the Newbury area. If this is posted in the wrong section - I apologise. Can repost if there is a more suitable place. With thanks, Kat
  13. Hi All, I am a new member and I am an architect and arboriculturist, based in Warwickshire. I am looking for some feedback if possible. I am passionate about both trees and buildings, and in particular am interested in locating trees close to buildings. There are a number of barriers preventing this, such as : - the RPA calculation in BS5837 - threat of litigation - lack of arboricultural knowledge that architects have My doctoral research relates to how these barriers could be moved to allow trees to be located closer to buildings taking advantage of all of the widely known benefits. Can anyone comment on how the 12x calculation for single stem trees for RPA was arrived at? The calculation seems arbitrary and doesn't appear to necessarily relate to all situations. I am also interested to know if anyone knows the authors of the calculation or how it was arrived at.
  14. We are looking for an experienced Consulting Arboriculturist to join our growing team in Preston, Lancashire. For further information and details of how to apply click here: Consulting Arboriculturist - Bowland Tree Consultancy

  17. We are a voluntary group and have built 6km of a 26km trail along a river in New Zealand. This is for the community to use for running, biking etc so they don't need to use the highway. We are planting both natives and exotics along the Trail and one of our very generous donors would like to see what we are planting and where so she can follow where her donations are being used. Is there a app that anyone has used which is preferably free so that we can mark on it the 500 trees she has given us so far and then keep marking future trees on Google Maps so she can follow this . Her health doesn't allow her to walk the trail . Any help would be appreciated I cannot find any other site to post on or any program that allows me to send an image of the trail map with the tree positions shown - at a price we can afford.
  18. Hello I'm looking for a gang of tree planters local to Axminster to plant a couple of thousand trees. Anyone interested? Good Rates.
  19. Hello to everybody... Since August 2017 this year, I have been creating a public record of events in the form of small video productions. They depict the ongoing controversial tree feelings happening in Sheffield to date. I am very keen to hear from any Arboriculturists with their views regarding how they think their industry might be affected, when actions of this nature by Sheffield City Council go ahead. Although some of the videos I have put online may look to be a little biased, I can assure you that my intention is to give everybody an equal opportunity to have their say and put their point across, but unfortunately some videos have ended up looking like my intention is not as intended, for which on my part, if I have offended anybody, I sincerly apologise as it was not my intention in the first place and I can assure you, it is not my intention as time goes by...! Although I have highlighted in the past to all concerned in the videos that their points of view are important, I do believe and understand their concerns for whatever they might be, as to why they have chosen not to speak with reference to what they might want to say if anything at all...! Therefore I am extending my offer to any Arboriculturists as well as those I continue to encounter on a weekly basis. However, what I would like to say now is that each and every individual including myself, must accept responsibility for their own actions, even more so in the presence of a video recording camera...! Are you an Arboriculturist working in Sheffield now or have been and do you want to share your views? I would be very interested in knowing your views either on hear or by a private message if anonymity is your preference. You can message me directly on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/BANAMAN.Productions/ As an Arboriculturist, have you been subject to any threats or violence either physically or verbally while working on the PFI contract in Sheffield? Have you witnessed any threats or violence either physically or verbally while working on the PFI contract in Sheffield? As any aspect of your job working on the PFI contract in Sheffield affected you in any way at home or at work? Does your future work depend on keeping as many healthy street trees as possible? If you are an Arboriculturist in another part of the country not working on the PFI contract in Sheffield, I would also be interested in your views. Have you been following what is happening in Sheffield regarding the current ongoing tree situation and want to share your view? Does your future work depend on keeping as many healthy street trees as possible in our city's towns and villages? How would you feel if you had to endure what the Arboriculturists working on the PFI contract in Sheffield?

  24. Hello fellow arborists! So I have a problem and I don't know who can fix it... This forum seems the best place to find out! My friend has inherited a farm through his family, a very big one! It's absolutely gorgeous and the land begins in Lewes near Brighton. As gorgeous as it may be agriculturally it needs a lot of TLC (Tender Loving Care). This subject takes my interest so i'm excited to help although I do not have enough experience or knowledge on everything that needs sorting! For example: The tree's need a serious inspection I have no idea of the possible diseases etc they could have so any tree surgeon contractor/ tree pruning type of service would be great, its a big job he has a lot of trees.. Also Tree stump removal.. Sure there are many companies that do this and yet again its a big job he has/had a lot of trees, is there any companies that you guys are aware of around these areas? A personal recommendation would be fantastic. I have heard Dave Ford Tree Care in surrey? Also Geall Tree Surgery but I haven't had any personal recommendations from them, and we want a reliable company. There are many more things that we need to fix, but that is all on the agricultural side, to another forum I will go! Thanks in advance
  25. Due to the demand for our recent 'Wildlife and Woodlands' Training Day CPD courses we are running 2 further stand alone one day courses on the following dates. Friday May 30th 2014 and Friday June 27th 2014. The course is run in Suffolk by highly qualified practitioners and is specifically designed for those who work with trees, in estate or woodland management, arboriculture, or conservation, and who would like to add to their Continuing Professional Development by learning more about woodland management, protected species (particularly British bat species) and the law. The course is also suitable for anyone who is working towards a Natural England Bat Licence, a barn owl licence, or a great crested newt licence. In order to make sure everyone can gain the most from the day places are strictly limited to 8 and will be available on a first come first served basis. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you require any further information. Thank you.
