Welcome to Mount Pleasant Trees Welcome to Mount Pleasant Trees

Gloucestershire based Mount Pleasant Trees supplies fresh, carefully grown and handled trees with strong roots and great growth potential at competitive prices.

We sell young bare rooted trees for hedging, shelterbelts, screening and woodland planting. Mixed native hedging species are an important part of our business such as hawthorn, blackthorn, hazel, field maple, wild privet, oak and lime plus classic ornamental varieties like beech, hornbeam, yew and box.

We also offer economical and fast growing willow and poplar cuttings for biomass, timber, amenity or garden. Whether the priority is stock-proof hedging, meticulous garden design, timber yield or specimen rarity, our range of trees covers the whole planting spectrum.

We pride ourselves in supplying a broad range of containerised and bare-rooted arboretum and garden trees alongside a selection of rarities. We are one of a few UK nurseries offering the beautiful Sequioia sempervirens (Coast Redwood). The largest of our specimens are up to around 200cm+ (7ft) and the trees clearly flourish in the wet and mild conditions we have been experiencing over the last few years. These trees are becoming important as an option for forestry given the current climate issues and diseases attacking our more traditional species. Think big!

This year we are delighted to be the first nursery in the UK to be selling a new cultivar of hornbeam Carpinus betulus Rockhampton Red (CBRR) which was discovered here in Rockhampton, Gloucestershire 20 years ago. It grows like a normal hornbeam but has stunning red and orange foliage in late autumn. This autumn the CBRR won the best new tree award at one of the most prestigious Dutch horticultural shows. Read more about the tree by clicking on the side bar heading.

Although we are not able to offer Ash (due to Chalara fraxinea or Ash Dieback disease – see Forestry Commission website for further reading), we do have a large variety of beautiful native alternatives. Consider an MPT favourite: The Wild Service Tree (Sorbus tormanalis). This tough tree with glorious autumn hues isn’t planted enough in our opinion. If you are looking for quick-growing alternatives to Ash as a fuel source consider planting species such as Alder, Birch or some of our willow sets.

We look forward to hearing from you over the season.
