UK Sourced and Grown

5th April 2019

The Woodland Trust is encouraging forest nurseries to register interest in a voluntary scheme which assures the provenance of native trees.

The conservation charity has created an accreditation scheme to highlight when nurseries sell trees of UK provenance. This means that tree planters and garden lovers can make sure saplings have come from a safe source, and will not be contributing to the spread of pests and diseases from other countries.
