A tree nursery is celebrating after securing a prestigious order from the United Arab Emirates.

Amidst the uncertainty that surrounds ash trees, both environmentally and commercially, Snitterby based British Hardwood Tree Nursery (BHT) was delighted to win a significant order to export tree accessories to Dubai.

Managing Director for BHT Andrew Henderson said: “We have been talking to a landscaping company in Dubai, and were very pleased to win the contract to supply 15,000 Buckle Tree Ties for a variety of planting projects within the emirate.”

The nursery has just invested in a new warehouse and computer upgrades for the busy ‘bare root’ season that lasts from October to April when the team of nine will distribute over 1 million trees and hedging plants throughout the UK.

BHT was established in 1989 and supplies an extensive range of quality bare root trees, shrubs and hedgerow plants to farmers, landowners, estate owners, contractors and public sector organisations nationwide.
