Wildlife tree pack

Just one fully grown oak tree supports a thousand species. Imagine the difference you could make for your local wildlife with this pack!

Trees help woodland wildlife by establishing and providing food sources and habitats and our wildlife tree pack will help you to create a living legacy for future generations. This pack contains a mix of hawthorn, hazel, silver birch, rowan, English oak and blackthorn trees.

  • Pack of 105 -  15 x Hawthorn, 30 x Hazel, 15 x Silver Birch, 15 x Oak and 30 x Blackthorn.
  • Pack of 420 - 75 x Hawthorn, 90 x Hazel, 75 x Silver Birch, 90 x Oak and 90 x Blackthorn.

Hawthorn provides a valuable food source for many small birds and insects. The dense thickets provide shelter for small mammals such as wood mice.

Hazel trees provide food for small mammals such as dormice and squirrels as well as various species of birds. 

Silver birch provides food and habitat for more than 300 insect species. Woodpeckers and other hole-nesting birds often nest in the trunk.

English oak supports more life than any other native tree. It produces acorns in autumn which mammals such as squirrels, badgers and deer feed upon.

Blackthorn foliage is a great food source for caterpillars and birds often nest among the dense thickets. In autumn, the tree produces sloes which act as a food source for the birds.

Estimate full grown height: 

Blackthorn: 6-7m, Silver birch: 15-20m, Hawthorn: 15m, Hazel: 10m+ and English oak: 20-40m.

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 this mix is available here.

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 and your trees will be delivered within 10 working days. You will receive a cell grown sapling, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Orders comprising of more than 900 trees may take longer than the standard 10-day delivery window.

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.
