Targeting tree disease packs

Trees and woods are crucial; they give homes to wildlife, clean air and water, provide food and fuel. But they're under threat. 60 million trees have already been taken by Dutch elm disease and 126 million trees in British woods are at risk of ash dieback. There are 19 pests and diseases attacking our native trees, six of which have reached epidemic levels and at least 11 more diseases are nearing our borders.

This pack is subsidised (part-funded) by the Woodland Trust* to help you restore existing woodland or hedgerows and regenerate countryside that is threatened by disease.

This pack is made up of trees suited to growing on large plots of land. It includes 45 cell-grown saplings, approximately 20-60cm in height. You’ll receive 15 of each tree species; along with 45 1.3m hardwood stakes and 45 1.2m tubex shelters.

Choose from our 8 different mixes to ensure you can get a pack to suit your location: 

  • Beech, Birch and Oak Mix
  • Silver Birch, Rowan and Oak mix (recommended for Scotland)
  • Beech, Hornbeam and Oak Mix
  • Hornbeam, Oak and Wild Cherry Mix
  • Beech, Hornbeam and Wild Cherry Mix
  • Silver Birch, Rowan and Sessile Oak Mix (recommended for Wales)
  • Birch, Hornbeam and Wild Cherry Mix
  • Birch, Oak and Wild Cherry Mix

These trees can be planted with spacing to meet your requirements and are ideally suited to replacing diseased trees that have grown through hedgerows. Please note that species within these packs can grow to a height of 20-40m so take this into consideration when planting to ensure they have sufficent space.

Estimate full-grown height: Beech: 10-40m, Birch: 18-25m, Hornbeam: 30m, Oak: 20-40m, Rowan: 8-15m, Sessile Oak: 20-40m, Silver Birch: 15-20m, Wild Cherry: 18-25m.

UK sourced and grown: Every sapling that we provide is UK sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track each individual tree.

More information about the trees in this pack can be found here.

More information about how to identify and prevent tree diseases is available here. 

*The Woodland Trust is funding approximately 60% of the cost of these tree packs.

Whilst we are experiencing such hot weather we are trying to ensure that all our trees are watered before being dispatched but it is still likely that they will be thirsty when they arrive with you. We would strongly advise that your trees are given water as soon as they arrive and are then watered before and after you plant them. It is likely that your new trees will need watering for a few days whilst this weather continues and we would recommend that this watering happens once the sun has gone down each evening. Please ensure you soak the ground thoroughly to ensure the roots grow down in search of further groundwater, rather than remaining near the surface. 

Planting information: As a rough guide, trees are usually planted at around 2m intervals but please take into account the final size of the tree and be aware of buildings, services and other plants nearby to ensure that damage cannot occur from the roots and canopy as the tree grows.

Oct-Feb - This is the best time of year for planting trees and your sapling is dormant, as long as it is kept free from frost and wind as well as being kept moist and in light conditions then it will last a few weeks before planting.

Mar-Sept - Your sapling is growing fast and will need planting as soon as possible. Planting it immediately will ensure it does not dry out, lose nutrients etc.

On-going care requirements: Once planted, your tree will need some care and attention for a few years; this will mainly be weeding around the base to reduce the competition for nutrients and ensuring your tree has enough water. For more information about caring for your trees, click here.

Delivery information: Free delivery is available for all tree orders but please allow up to 7-10 days for your delivery to arrive. You will receive a cell grown sapling, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Please be aware that depending upon the time of year you receive your sapling (particularly early spring) it may not look very perky upon arrival, please do not worry once it has been planted it should pick up quickly.
