Gloucestershire based Mount Pleasant Trees provide young bare-rooted trees for hedging, shelterbelts, screening and woodland planting. These are fresh, carefully grown and handled trees with strong roots and great growth potential at competitive prices.
Mixed native hedging is at the heart of our business. We sell species such as hawthorn, blackthorn, hazel, field maple, wild privet, oak and lime plus classic ornamental varieties like beech, hornbeam, yew and box. We pride ourselves on supplying a broad range of containerised and bare-rooted arboretum and garden trees, including a strong selection of unusual species.
Whether your priority is stock-proof hedging, meticulous garden design, timber yield or specimen rarity, our range of trees covers the whole planting spectrum.
Our stunning autumn-colouring Hornbeam the Carpinus betulus ‘Rockhampton Red’ (CBRR) has gained significant traction amongst plant hunters since its release two seasons ago and we can confirm good availability of specimens upward of 180cm in height. This cultivar of the native Carpinus betulus was discovered at the nursery in Rockhampton by Geoff Locke in the early nineties. The CBRR’s spectacular fiery-red and orange autumn show can compete with the seasonal displays of Acer, Parrotia and Liquidambar ornamentals, whilst maintaining the intrinsically hardy characteristics of common hornbeam.
We’re among a limited pool of UK nurseries supplying the magnificent Sequoia sempervirens (Coast Redwood). Our semi-mature field grown specimens, of which we have a good supply, measure 250cm+ in height. These vigorous Californian natives have flourished in the wet and mild conditions that the UK has experienced in recent years and are suitable for both forestry and specimen planting.
We look forward to hearing from you over the season.
Tom and Elizabeth
