Choosing the Right Species for London

You want to plant a tree or shrub, but which one? We've developed several resouces to help you decide.

A good place to begin are the tree and shrub brochures listed below which are a homeowner guide to choosing tree and shrub species that are suitable for London as well as species that should be planted with caution or avoided all together. Both brochures are available as colour brochures. For hard copies, contact us.
