Ash Dieback

It is important to consider the type of tree you plant in your garden, be it a large or small, rural or urban environment. Here are some tips to help you with your decision:

  • Each tree must suit the soil, climate, exposure elements and water levels.
  • The size and space available is vital to the type of species you should plant – you do not want to have to remove a tree because it has grown too large for its environment.
