Quercus ilex (standard tree)
There is currently an import ban on all Oak trees into the UK. This is because of a caterpillar of the Oak Processionary Moth (OAP). We import our Quercus ilex from Italy, and for now we can not supply them. The ban is due to be lifted Autumn 2020, so if you pre-order trees with us, this will reserve the stock that will be coming in to us. Be warned there will be a large demand for the stock available, once the ban is lifted, and if you do not pre order we can not guarantee you the supply of your Quercus ilex trees.
The evergreen Oak, or Holme Oak! Quercus ilex is a useful tree for screening purposes, as is trying to become a large tree, but is relatively slow growing. It can easily be feathered, and trained to grow into a pleached shaped tree. It is an evergreen tree with black, finely cracked bark that grows in to a very handsome rounded shape tree. Glossy dark green ovate leaves, that have a pale underside to the leaf, making an interesting contrast to look at. It forms yellow catkins too.
