Ravensbill Mountain Ash or Rowan Tree click the link for containerised Ravensbill Mountain Ash and for more information.
The Ravensbill is an upright tree and it gets its name from the Winter buds apparently as they are long, black and curved. The leaves turn a great yellow orange in the Autumn.
The large number of blossoms in Spring make for an attractive feature of the tree which then in turn go to bright red berries and is considered to be a good choice of tree for planting in parks, gardens etc because of its interesting looks, longevity and acceptance of a wide range of soil types.
Only prune when absolutely necessary e.g. dead, diseased or crossing over branches.
Ravensbill is suitable for planting in normal coastal and/or wet conditions, clay spoil and will attract the birds.
Considered a small tree, so expect a height of around 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years although this can very depending on local conditions and weather.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots.
Have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other issues.
