One of the most magnificent of all British trees, the grand Sweet Chestnut makes a wonderful feature tree, and is widely planted in parks and gardens.Over time, it forms a large habit of oval-shaped, green leaves with slender flower catkins. It has silvery-purple, cracked bark that develops into ridges that spiral up the trunks of older specimens. It is considered an 'honorary' native tree, as it was actually introduced into Britain by the Romans over 2000 years ago, and is now widespread across the country. If you want a tree that will truly impress for decades to come, this is the one for you. Perfect for planting right now, it will be supplied complete with a tanalised tree stake and rubber tie, so that your new tree can get off to the best possible start!
Supplied as a freshly lifted, 1-1.2m tall, bare-root tree, complete with tanalised softwood tree stake and durable rubber tie.
Will grow to approx. 20m tall in 20 years.
