What We Offer

Over many years Todds Nursery has developed the leading procurement and supply service for the largest landscaping projects in the UK and Europe. We hold an extensive stock level that means that most trees are readily available. We can supply anything, from two-year-old whips to fully mature ‘mega- and super-semi’ sized trees.

We treat all our clients, from individual private customers to large contracting companies and developers with the same level of care and understanding: taking time to listen to your requirements and using our experience to provide the best solutions.

Our customer service begins before you select your trees and extends beyond planting. We can ensure continued good health with annual visits and a range of maintenance plans. We also pride ourselves on providing all our clients with the confidence to care for their own trees.


We offer a vast number of services ranging from tree installation to design consultation. Whatever your order size or requirements, we will devise a bespoke service to suit your needs.

Contract Growing

From initial concept and design, we can produce and supply all trees, shrubs and hedging you require in the correct form and size to meet your project’s unique specifications. With our proven ability to deliver plants and trees to site safely having followed rigid controls, you and your clients can follow a full audit trail from initial selection to final installation on site.

Whether you need trees supplied in six months or six years, we can grow and maintain stock, as well as advise on the necessary timescales required to produce particular types and species. This gives you time to select exactly the trees you want, allowing them to be designed and fully integrated into the built environment.

Todds Nursery can match particular trees or shrubs to your designs, and we regularly undertake specialist and unique commissions, producing trees with particular shapes or forms – even producing specialist shapes of rootball to accommodate existing services and structures.

We pride ourselves on turning your exact vision into reality.

When it comes to procuring the rare and unusual, we work closely with a small number of trusted specialist suppliers around the world. All of them share our vision of customer service and our high technical production and phytosanitary standards.

On our own nursery, or when accompanying our clients on trips to select their material from our suppliers, we use a mixture of security tagging and audits to ensure we deliver the exact plants you have selected, while our high technical standards ensure your trees arrive on site in the best possible health.

We are firm believers in using the best technology to produce the best plants. Our growing techniques do not stand still, as witnessed by the improvements in the root balls of our trees over the last 30 years.

Today Todds Nursery is as automated as possible. Our modern feeding and watering system adjusts the pH and the balance of nutrients supplied, not only according to the species and size of the plant, but also based on its growth stage and the season, ensuring every tree or shrub produced grows to its maximum potential and is as healthy as possible. Wherever possible we use humane methods of pest control and seek to reduce our use of fertilisers and crop protection products.

These technologies, combined with our highly-trained staff, all of whom share the same passion, knowledge, and experience as our Directors, make us the leading innovator in the sector.

Tree Installation

Todds offers a complete tree installation service for both private customers and commercial projects. Our experience and expertise along with clear communication at every stage will give you the confidence that the exact plants you’ve chosen will arrive in pristine condition.

Planting takes into account preparation and appropriate staking, support, fertiliser, and feed to ensure your trees get the best start in their final location. If required we can provide a full ongoing maintenance service.

Our tree installation service includes:

Consultation

At Todds we help to meet the unique demands of today’s modern landscaping projects. Our service doesn’t start and end with selling a tree. We provide advice to help you put the right tree in the right place and our flexible and adaptable approach to delivery and installation means that you can be confident of receiving stock as and when you are ready for it.

Tree Lifting

As well as planting, we are able to provide innovative solutions for lifting trees and placing them in tricky environments; whether that involves lifting over buildings, putting them into courtyards, closing roads, or moving existing planting.

Our fully qualified telescopic handler operators and fleet of modern lifting machinery enables us to deliver and plant our stock to areas that might seem hard to reach. We have decades of experience installing large trees in difficult situations to the most prestigious projects.

We supply full lifting and installation plans which not only help with your project planning, but meet the necessary health & safety and technical requirements for construction projects, local councils and other licensing authorities. Todds Nursery really can supply ‘any tree – anywhere.’

Movement / Transplanting of Existing Trees

Thanks to our modern and efficient fleet of equipment and our experienced and qualified staff, Todds are able to provide a complete tree transplanting service to clients with existing trees that require moving and re-planting. Our robust ground protection track-matting allows us to track heavy plant over soft ground without causing damage.

Depending on the size and age of the tree or trees, we have a variety of tree spades and plant which can move trees up to a root ball size of 2m. Examples of clients using this service include landowners moving trees for screening, and developers preserving rare specimens by transplanting them rather than felling.
