The 44-page manual explains the nursery production processes involved in young tree production, highlighting the good and bad practice found in the three main production methods used on UK tree nurseries. It includes concise statements for use in the drafting of specifications for the procurement and supply of young trees.

Written and illustrated by Barcham sales director Keith Sacre, the manual has chapters on tree health, branch, stem and crown development, and root system development and management.

Sacre also recommends reference to BS8545: From Nursery to Independence in the Landscape (2014), The European Technical and Quality Standards for Nursery Stock (2010), and the National Plant Specification Guide.
