Our semi-mature specimen trees are grown in deep loam rich Cheshire soils.

All our trees are regularly transplanted. This guarantees a good fibrous root system that's quick to re-establish in it's final planting location.

Trees are supplied as either 'field bagged' or 'rootballed'. For out of season planting we also supply 'spring ring' or 'container grown' depending upon the time of the year.

Rootball sizes are determined by the tree trunks girth (see 'specification'). Each rootball size is lifted by a purpose made blade that produces a uniform, rounded rootball. This is then wrapped in a degradeable hessian, and wired secure.

Field bagged trees are wrapped at the moment of lifting in specially made co-extended, black/white bags that keep roots in perfect condition.

All our trees have been top pruned throughout their production lives which produces a well balanced crown and leader with a silhouette typical of the species.
