Forestry Trees Wholesale


We grow organic healthy, hardy timber trees in root trainers and open ground. All trees will be of a plantable grade. Due to supply limitations, only a smaller wholesale grade may be available, eg 20cm instead of 30cm. We aim to supply a foot tall tree (30cm) that will survive the rigours of planting.
