Ornamental Trees & Hedging

If Ornamental Trees are a worthwile addition to any garden. As well as adding height and structure, they can be rewarding for their spring blossom and autumn leaf colour and in the case of hedging plants, can be used to form an attractive boundary. Many will also produce a substantial crop of edible fruit and will attract birds and beneficial wildlife. Most young ornamental trees can be pruned to suit even the smallest of gardens and hedging plants can be trimmed to suit most requirements.
