Acer campestre, or the field maple, a medium-sized deciduous tree, is the UK’s only native maple tree. Its round, dense, bushy crown is asymmetrical and capriciously growing. The branches have corky fissures. The foliage is dark green, turning golden yellow in autumn. Small, yellow-green flowers are followed by winged fruits. Acer campestre is a very adaptable tree. It likes rich and well-drained soil, but also grows well in high pH soils or acid soils. It is tolerant to draught and air pollution and resistant to frost and wind. In its first years, it is very shade tolerant, but subsequently, it requires more light. Apart from growing in woods and hedgerows, it is often planted in broad streets, coastal and industrial areas. It is perfect for medium and large gardens, as a tree or a hedge, and suitable for roof gardens and growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
