BS8545

BS8545This new and eagerly-anticipated standard will go a long way to ensure that we have trees which are of the finest quality from the nursery, planted in the right place and given the best care and proper attention to flourish once in the ground.

Making the right investments in the formative years will help guarantee a future full of high quality trees, enabling us to enjoy the countless benefits which they provide for us - and for our environment - once they have been given the opportunity to establish.

LTOA members can get a 25% discount when buying the standard, please contact Becky Porter on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
