Cut Leaved Alnus Glutinosa Imperialis 

A very ornamental form of Alder (not the ornamental sense that you could put it on the mantle piece next to the cheap tat your Mother In-law got you last Christmas). It has fine and deeply cut leaves making it a great specimen tree. Used in parks and gardens for these very ornamental qualities and has a high resistance to urban pollution. 

Considered a fast growing tree suitable for almost any soil except chalk and will perform well in damp or boggy sites. At the time of writing the Cut Leaved Alnus Glutinosa Imperialis held the RHS Award Of Garden Merit which basically means it performs very well compared to other Alder trees.

Feel free to severely prune to shape or promote new growth as it will shrug its branches and just grow more. Will tolerate full sun and shade positions with characteristics likely to attract wildlife. 

Fully UK hardy so you can plant almost anywhere in the UK and not worry about it being killed of by the cold.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Cut Leaved Alnus Glutinosa Imperialis

Just have to say thank you and a big wow for the trees ordered from your fantastic site. Great communication re order and many thanks for the elegant Alnus glutinosa - what a lovely surprise. The golden willow looks very much at home in our lower somewhat damp lower paddock. The packaging was amazing and am sure it is an art installation in its own right. Will be ordering again soon as we have a large shrubbery to plan. Cheers Chris 0815

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

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. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental 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.

UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.

Water Logged Conditions
Willow, Alder, Birch and Poplar 
may help lower the water level so long as you do not have permanent standing water e.g. your local diving and sailing club meets on your lawn.
