Trees are the majestic guardians of the British landscape, comprising diverse species like oak, beech, and Scots pine. In the garden, these trees serve both aesthetic and practical purposes. Their towering presence adds vertical interest, creating a natural canopy that enhances the overall beauty of the outdoor space.
Beyond their visual appeal, native trees contribute to garden ecosystems. They provide shelter and nesting sites for birds, supporting local wildlife. Deciduous trees, such as the iconic oak, offer shade in the summer and allow sunlight through in the winter, creating a dynamic environment. Evergreen trees maintain green foliage year-round, ensuring a constant backdrop of colour and structure.
Trees also play a crucial role in improving air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. Their extensive root systems help prevent soil erosion, promoting soil health. Additionally, trees act as windbreaks, reducing the impact of strong winds and creating a more sheltered environment for other plants and outdoor activities.
You can find a wide range of native and non-native trees here at Spring Green Nurseries Garden Centre, most of them a suitable size to fit in your vehicle and take away with you on the same day!
