Trees for attracting wildlife
Browse our handpicked selection of the best trees to attract and support wildlife in your garden. Planting berrying, fruiting, and nut-producing trees, or simply those with canopies that provide cover and shelter for wildlife, provide no end of ecological benefits. Even a single tree can support a vast array of insects, which in turn provide food for birds, bats and other animals that may also feast on the berries and nuts they produce. Many people like to choose native varieties which are undoubtedly valuable, although many non-natives are highly effective too, especially flowering and berrying trees. Whether you’re an avid bird watcher or simply enjoy their presence around the home, developing your garden in a way that supports a range of birds can be both rewarding and beneficial. Along with lady birds, lacewings and small mammals, birds naturally eat garden pests, avoiding the need to spray with harmful chemicals. Japanese acers are small, dome-shaped trees with dense canopies once established, perfect for providing cover for wildlife and shelter them from the rain. We stock a number of grafted cotoneaster trees with nutritious berries, as well as hazelnut bushes and fruit trees that benefit from pollinators to increase your crop.
