Semi Mature Trees

Large Specimen and Semi- Mature Trees up to 30 years old

Most are 8-25 years old and up to 20ft high. They are all supplied as dug, which in most cases will mean with quite a lot of soil attached to the roots. The larger ones have a trunk circumference of about 30 cm. or more.( 10 cm.(or 4in.) diameter measured at 1 metre above ground level. Most will have been transplanted or undercut at least four times. All these trees are grown here and are significantly cheaper (often half the price or less) of other large tree suppliers. Please telephone if you would like further details of : exact height, girth, bushyness etc. The price reflects the age, size, rarity and the degree of symmetry. We have some cheaper ones of some species which are asymmetric in shape, these are ideal for economical screening. Conifers and evergreens need especially careful handling and may need protection from wind damage when transporting and in the first few months after planting. See the link (on the left hand side of this page) to the Civic Trees website which gives very good information about caring for large trees.
All the larger sizes cannot be transported on anything smaller than a 10ft long trailer, long drop-side Transit, or flat bed lorry. We can advise on transport possibilities. We can assist with machine loading (most are too heavy to man-handle). It is impossible to load into closed sided lorries or vans. Prices are approximate indications and will vary from one specimen to another. We will of course quote you the exact price of any tree chosen. For some species we only have two or three specimens available, In the cases of : Hornbeam, Limes, Poplars, Oaks and Yew we have many specimens available.

Species available 2019 season.:

Prices vary depending on the individual specimen and the species but for most common deciduous species vary from about £75 to £300 for specimens in the size range 10-20 ft. For an average 12 ft specimen price is likely to be between £90-£140. Note that evergreens and conifers are generally more expensive.
The survival rate of these trees is likely to be 95% or more if proper planting and aftercare is taken ( mulching is particularly important). If not properly planted or improper aftercare ( particularly under or over watering) then survival rate may be 50% or less.
Of the many hundreds of trees like this we have transplanted the losses are a handful.
We make no guarantee of survival.
