Andrew’s Tree of the Month – LIQUIDAMBAR ‘Worplesdon’ 💖 – 17th May 2021

Here we have our second edition of our Staff Tree of the Month Video Series. 

This week we have Andrew. Andrew takes care of nursery maintenance and production, making sure everything is looking its best around the nursery.

Andrew’s favourite tree this month is the vibrant LIQUIDAMBAR styraciflua ‘Worplesdon’. This is one of our most popular deciduous trees, and is often used for avenue, street, or specimen planting.

Shown above are the trees at Frankton Pak’n’Save – beautiful big specimens now, these were installed several years back.
