Tree protection options: 

You can choose whether you want to purchase tree protection alongside your saplings or not. Please consider whether your saplings need protection, particularly from browsing mammals. 

  • No tree protection – your order will contain saplings, but no tree protection. We would suggest this option if your saplings are unlikely to be affected by browsing mammals of any size, or if you have plans for alternative tree protection e.g., browsing reduction, fencing. 

  • Easywraps and canes – your order will contain saplings as well as easywraps and canes. This option will help to provide protection from small mammals e.g. voles. 

  • Tubes and stakes - your order will contain saplings as well as tubes and stakes. This option will help to provide protection from small and large browsing mammals. 

Estimated full grown height: 

Silver birch: 15-20m, Hazel: 10m+, Crab apple: 7-9m and Rowan: 8-15m.

Purchase size and growth:

Due to current growing conditions this species may be shorter than we usually expect and fall outside of approximations given.

These trees are cell-grown saplings, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Cell grown trees can be planted all year round in most situations as long as they are given the correct care. 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.

UK and Ireland Sourced and Grown (UKISG):

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

Take a look at our tree planting advice for further information.

More information about the trees in this mix is available here.

The images in this product listing show the saplings bundled and wrapped. This plastic wrap is made from LDPE (low-density polyethylene) and is 100% recyclable, we encourage users to recycle them when you are ready to plant your trees.

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.

Please note that you may require tree protection if your saplings will be at risk of damage from mammals such as rabbits or deer. Take a look at our available tree protection options.

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.
