Tree of the month

Every tree is fascinating, beautiful and deserving of recognition, whether that be for its striking appearance, ecological value or unique characteristics that change throughout the seasons. Since 2010 we have been highlighting each month a variety of tree providing some insight into its qualities and history, to provide a useful data sheet that can be used for the selecting of plants by our clients. As this has grown to now over 100 data sheets and more being added each month we hope you find this a useful resource.
