British Hardwood Tree Nursery plans expansion

After 2015 sales performance "unprecedented in its previous 25-year history", British Hardwood Tree Nursery (BHT) plans to invest, expand and promote into 2017.

The investment of more than £90,000 on the expansion in Lincolnshire, includes a fifth shed, additional mezzanine and refurbishment in an existing shed, new staff quarters and a dedicated commercial site entrance.

BHT managing director Andrew Henderson said: "We've always maintained a positive outlook to business development and whilst we continue to grow in market penetration and presence, we realise that we can always improve further – and that means investment in facilities. As the UK's southernmost select distributor of Tubex tree protection products, we're perfectly poised to service the market for plants and planting accessories from our central hub in Lincolnshire. Now we have more space and better logistics on site to take this forward."
