WELCOME TO GROWING NATIVE
Native trees are under increasing threat to from pests and diseases newly imported on plant material. The value of trees cultivated from locally sourced seed to minimise risk can no longer be over-stated. The Tree Council welcomes the refresh of this website, which we hope will encourage many more people to set up a local tree nursery and grow a future for our landscape” – Jon Stokes, Directer of Programs for The Tree Council.
Growing Native started in 1989, when my journey into the world of trees and conservation began with me volunteering in The Tree Council’s national Tree Warden Scheme, which resulted in me becoming a Tree Warden. Little did I know what a life changing learning journey it was going to be. Read more about Growing Native’s history here: http://www.growingnative.co.uk/history/
