Our 5 acre nursery at Down Hatherley stocks a wide range of containerised semi-mature trees in containers suitable for year-round planting and acts as a holding nursery for the large range of semi mature trees that we import from our contract tree nurseries in Italy, France, Germany and Holland.

To view a small sample of what Nature First have to offer, please have a look at our online virtual nursery tour.

Nature First supply semi mature conifers and evergreens in addition to traditional broadleaved ornamental semi mature trees. Nature first also deal with nurseries throughout Europe on a daily basis and try harder to find the exact species and variety that you require.

Opening times:  Monday to Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm (or by appointment)

Selection and Sizes

At first glance the way in which semi mature trees are measured can appear confusing. Rather than being graded by height, the circumference of the stem is measured 1metre above ground level. This gives a more accurate gauge by which the overall maturity of the tree can be judged. Sizes are in 5cm increments thus 30 to 35cm girth which translates to roughly 100cm diameter or 4″. Nature First’s friendly semi mature tree sales team will be glad to help you with advice on selection of appropriate species.
