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.
Following last season’s limited release of the Carpinus betulus ‘Rockhampton Red’ (CBRR), this fantastic autumn-colouring Hornbeam will be available in slightly larger numbers this year. Already securing accolades in the horticultural world, this cultivar of Carpinus betulus was discovered here, at the nursery in Rockhampton, by Geoff Locke around 25-years ago. A propagation programme of grafted plants from this parent tree commenced about 5-years ago. The CBRR’s reliable fiery-red and orange autumn show, beginning around October, is easily on par with Parrotia and Liquidambar, whilst it maintains the hardy characteristics of common hornbeam. More information on the CBRR can be found in the ‘Information’ sidebar.
We are also one of the few UK nurseries offering the magnificent Sequoia sempervirens (Coast Redwood). With good availability in a broad range of sizes, our field grown specimens are upwards of 8ft in height. These vigorous Californian natives have flourished in the wet and mild conditions we have experienced in recent years and are suitable for both forestry and specimen planting (space allowing!)
We look forward to hearing from you over the season.
