Alba Trees nursery lies in the prime agricultural lands of East Lothian near Edinburgh, enjoying the highest number of sunshine hours in Scotland which promotes excellent plant growth. Our northerly location also exposes our plants to traditional, Scottish winters which helps make them famously hardy and perfect for woodland planting throughout the UK. We have three nursery sites covering a total of 25 hectares, producing over 30 million trees a year. We grow cell-grown plants which can be planted all year round and the best rates of establishment. We have a robust biosecurity policy and do not import any plants. Please have a look around our nursery and meet our staff. If you would like to arrange a visit to our nursery to discuss your wholesale requirements, please get in touch.
In 2006, our reputation as a quality nursery led to Buccleuch investing in our company and they are now the major shareholder. As owner of over 10,000 ha of diverse woodlands, Buccleuch recognised the synergies that could be realised by bringing together their woodland department and the UK’s leading cell-grown nursery.
We also grow an extensive range of hedging and shrubs, plus reeds for reed bed projects.
We are also official Tubex stockists and supply the full range of the market-leading tree tubes, spirals and stakes.
