If your near Naas check out flannerys for trees, you can still plant bare rooted up to end of April, if you look after them, They will also deliver or you can collect. Buy 10/12 or 2/14 sizes anyhing bigger will cause you problems both in handleing and aftercare

Some of the most important tree planting tips to remember are to consider your soil and choose the right site.In general, the best time to plant a tree is in the early spring or the late fall, but research your specific plant in case of exceptions.

A favourite small tree of mine is Acer Griseum. It has attractively coloured spring foliage, good autumn colour and in winter it's bark glows a beautiful mahogany colour. Well worth planting where it can catch the winter sun.

Selection of planting stock is very important and the correct species of tree for the right site is a critical part before the planting operation.
The selection of good, strong, healthy nursery stock is also important; buy your trees from a reputable nurseryman, ensure that they have a healthy root system, large enough to support the size of the tree and a well balanced top.

Hi all,
We ended up planting two paper birch with a cotoneaster cornubia in a triangle formation. The paper birch have worked out lovely as they are nice and tall (around 15 ft) however, the guy we worked with couldn't source a large cornubia so it is only around 6ft. Now it is taking off well, but looks silly in comparison to the other two trees. We are currently on the hunt to find a larger one to replace it but it doesn't look likely. We really want at least one ever green tree in that area as it still looks very bare.
Thanks to everyone for all the advice and suggestions... I've a whole new appreciation for trees Smile
