Trees are the ‘lungs of the world’. We owe our very existence to the fact that they produce the oxygen so vital to life. They are also the creators of great beauty and stature, standing proud in the landscape and adorning the earth with majesty - like Queens. And beyond that, they are the most important plants in any garden, creating the form and structure that are permanent and long-lasting.

Evergreen Trees provide shade, shelter, privacy and atmosphere. They assist in the creation of a micro-climate in your garden, protecting whatever has been underplanted. Some trees are valued for their flowers in season, but these are not the prime consideration when selecting a tree for use in the garden design: elegance of habit, attractive foliage, shape and suitability for the position are more important.
Trees must be carefully selected for size and habit. So often, trees have to be removed because they outgrew their garden space. For small gardens, choose smaller growing trees so that they fill but do not cramp the space that has been allotted to them. For larger gardens, go wild and plant a forest of giants!
When selecting trees for the garden, consider the following questions:
How high do the branches grow?
Can you walk underneath the tree or do the branches droop to the ground?
Does the foliage have a sparse habit – allowing some filtered sunlight through or is it dense, and therefore dark underneath?
What is the full grown height, width, architectural form and shape of the tree?
What are the tolerance factors of moisture, heat, cold, drought, pH, salinity, space and light?
Know what you want and then set out to tick all the boxes to ensure that you select the right tree. And when in doubt, seek us out and we shall help you to make the right decision.

Fresh green well behaved foliage all year round. Natural upright slender habit. We just love it and recommend it highly. Makes an interesting xmas tree option too. Evergreen.
As the name of this wonderful conifer is a little hard to say it may help to know that it actually relates to the colour of the foliage i.e. it means emerald green in Danish
