Home-Grown Expertise

Alba Trees Plc is the UK’s leading forest tree nursery, producing trees in containers referred to as ‘cell grown’ plants.

Located in East Lothian, we benefit from the excellent growing conditions provided by the highest sunlight levels in Scotland which, combined with our cell-grown system, produces high quality plants that allow for all year-round planting and good establishment.

Our trees are used to establish native woodlands and productive forests throughout the UK and we are the major supplier of cell-grown trees to the Buccleuch Estates.  We also supply the landscaping, farm woodland and hedging sectors.  Tree sales are supported by the supply of a full range of tree protection products, planting equipment and a specially developed controlled-release fertiliser.  In addition, Alba supplies reeds and wildflowers for conservation projects and provides a range of species for water and flood management.

The nursery has a strict biosecurity policy and all of our trees are 100% UK grown, ensuring we continue to grow quality, healthy plants for our customers.
