Selecting, planting and taking care of apple and pear trees

The Tree Council is committed to supporting planting projects where trees are well cared for and have the best chance of long-term success. As fruit trees have special husbandry needs, we have collated this guidance with expert advice from Frank Matthews Nursery, orchard tree specialists and one of the largest fruit tree growing nurseries in the UK.

This guidance is designed to assist you with the practical aspects of selecting, planting and taking care of apple and pear trees in orchards and other locations. We have adopted the formal Defra definition of five well-spaced trees, as the minimum number of fruit trees necessary to form an orchard.
