Wild wood tree pack
This hardy native species mix can tolerate exposed sites and help dry up areas where water collects easily. Trees absorb water and their roots break up soil to help water penetrate the ground more deeply and slow surface water run-off. This pack contains a mixture of downy birch, hawthorn, crab apple, hazel, goat willow and holly.
- Pack of 105 - 30 x Downy Birch, 30 x Hawthorn, 15 x Hazel and 30 x Goat Willow
- Pack of 420 - 120 x Downy Birch, 120 x Hawthorn, 60 60 x Hazel and 120 x Goat Willow

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.
