This Summer's Hottest Feature Trees

We have tallied our emails and quote requests off our website and discovered the top eight most enquired-about trees this summer! And what beauties they are!

Jacaranda mimosifolia

This fast growing tree is an elegant specimen with soft green foliage turning to yellow in winter before shedding. The flowers are purple, bell shaped and literally cover the canopy. An outstanding attraction for the summer months when in full flower. I think this one heads the list every summertime. it is a fantastic specimen tree giving dappled shade.

Pyrus calleryana 'Capital'

This ornamental pear tree has a narrow growth habit making it suitable for a wide range of uses including lining driveways and fencelines. It produces shiny green leaves that hang vertically from branches with an attractive curl at the end. Being deciduous, its leaves turn a reddish-purple in autumn as shown which adds to its attraction. A perfect tree for tight spaces to screen out two storey developments!
