What trees are available?

In 2023/24, applicants can choose from the following trees: Field Maple, Sessile Oak, Bird Cherry, Crab Apple .

Trees will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Depending on demand you may not get the type of tree you choose, but we'll try our hardest to give you your first choice.

What type of tree would suit my garden?

You can download this list of available trees to keep or print, which includes pictures of the trees.

How will I collect my tree?

We will have the trees ready for you to pick up in February 2024 from the TreeLink Nursery in Stirling. As well as your tree, we’ll give you a stake and tie if you need it, a mulch mat, and a guide to planting and caring for your tree.

What size will my tree be?

Depending on which type of tree you chose, it will probably measure between 1.0 and 2.0 metres in height when you collect it. It will be either in a pot, or bare rooted.

You can find a great guide from the Royal Horticultural Society here.
