Urban tree pack
You don’t have to live in the countryside to plant trees. Trees in urban areas deliver a wide range of benefits; they provide much-needed space for wildlife, absorb pollution and can boost people’s health and wellbeing for generations. This pack of 15 trees is subsidised (part-funded) by the Woodland Trust and our partners* and is the ideal size for urban planting, whether it’s in your garden or to share with neighbours and the wider community.
You’ll also receive 15 spirals and canes to help you protect your new trees from small mammals.
These packs come in regional varieties and, wherever possible, we try to match tree provenance to each location. We recommend you select the variety that is the closest to the location of your planting site:
- England: 5 Crab apple, 5 Hazel and 5 Field maple.
- Upland UK: 5 Hazel, 5 Rowan and 5 Silver birch.
- Scotland & Northern Ireland: 5 Hazel, 5 Rowan and 5 Silver birch.
- Wales & West of England: 5 Crab Apple, 5 Rowan and 5 Silver birch.
Estimate full-grown height: Silver birch: 15-20m, Crab apple: 7-9m, Field maple: 15-20m, Hazel:+10m, Rowan: 8-15m.
Purchase size and growth: 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.
More information about the trees in these packs can be found here.
A variant of this pack is also available in our Free Trees for schools and community groups. To find out more, visit our Free Trees page.
*Approximately 35% of the cost of these tree packs are subsidised by the Woodland Trust and our partners.
