National Tree Week 23 November - 1 December 2013
First started in 1975, National Tree Week is the UK's largest tree celebration and is launch annually at the start of the winter tree planting season to encouraging more planting of trees in all areas.
It has been proven that trees have a positive effect on our health and wellbeing and act as an antidote to our stressful lifestyles. Most of will know how good a walk in the woods makes us feel and trees planted in urban streets help reduce air pollution and act as windbreaks too.
All trees have a role to play in our environment and in our smaller town gardens fruit trees are especially beneficial they have beautiful spring blossom, provide a shady canopy from hot summer sun and at the end of the summer they provide us with a bounteous and fruitful harvest - what more could you want?
There are fruit trees to suit even the smallest of spaces some can even be grown in a container so there is no excuse not to have a tree or two in every garden. Fruit trees along with our other native trees provide a great habitat and food for an abundance of wildlife in the garden and in the countryside.
Check out our great tree range and let us know if you take plan to take part in this year's National Tree Week.
