Tree specialists collaborate to offer greater variety

Nottinghamshire-based Green Mile Trees has announced a trade collaboration with German tree specialist Jurgelucks Nurseries.

Green Mile Trees representative Ted Lewis said: "It's a really loose trade agreement at the moment and we are not exactly in a partnership. We are doing this to see how it works and what the customer base brings."

He said the nursery has a lot of stork from its German neighbours that it hopes to sell on a cash and carry basis.

Lewis added: "What we are looking for is to offer as wide a range as we possibly can.

We specialise in what we are good at, which tends to be trees with a girth of between 25 and 30cm.

"Jurgelucks has some bigger stuff and things that are probably a bit more unusual, which people are looking for a little bit more," he continued.

"In particular, garden designers are looking for something just a little bit more unusual."
