Ornamental Tree

Ornamental trees are a wide-ranging and highly diverse collection of trees, and they are broadly defined as trees that do not have the primary purpose of bearing fruit. In fact, ornamental trees are so wide-ranging that the exact number of species is not known, but it is estimated that there are over 100,000 different species of non-fruiting trees. In fact, there are so many different types of trees that the total number of trees collectively accounts for around a quarter of all plant species. It is thought that trees have existed on the earth for around 370 million years, and that over time they evolved to get their distinctively long trunk to compete for sunlight. Trees have also been a pivotal factor in the survival of humans; not only from their ability to filter our air, but also for their other uses, like for burning for fire wood or for making hunting tools out of. For the average gardener today however, trees are often planted for much more aesthetic reasons.

Ornamental trees in particular are planted for many reasons, including: screening; to add structure; to encourage wildlife; to improve the appearance of an outdoor space and to benefit the environment. Whatever reason that you choose to buy an ornamental tree, you need to make sure that you have the perfect tree for your requirements. Buying trees online from Mail Order Trees means that you can get premium quality trees delivered directly to you.

We have a great range of garden trees for sale, including trees that are great for planting in rows to create a screen and highly ornamental specimen trees that will make a great focal point. If you want a tree for screening, then you are best choosing an evergreen or semi-evergreen variety, and making sure that you select a tree that reaches your desired height and spread in a reasonable period of time. We would recommend the Magnolia 'Grandiflora', or the Photinia 'Red Robin' as two varieties that would be well-suited to most situations. If you required a tree for adding structure to your garden, then columnar trees like the Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata' are great for this, as these trees will add shape and height to your garden. If you want to encourage wildlife to your garden, then crab apple trees are the perfect choice: these trees produce both flowers and fruit, meaning that you will entice both the birds and the bees into your outdoor space. For many gardeners, having a specimen tree that simply looks great in their garden is the main reason for planting a tree: we could recommend dozens of varieties that are ideal for this, but certainly some of our most popular choices are the Prunus 'flowering cherry trees' and the Betula 'birch trees'. In terms of planting a tree that would be most beneficial for the environment, choose a tree that has a long life, like Quercus (Oak Trees) or Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood).

Here at Mail Order Trees we have a great selection of ornamental garden trees for sale, and the best bit is that you can buy our trees online and get them delivered to your door. Our ornamental trees are home-grown, so we can assure you that they have been well looked-after; we also pack them on site and send them out in specially designed packaging on an over-night service, so that they reach you in the best possible condition. We want to make sure that you know how to look after your new purchase, so we send every order out with a planting booklet, which also includes after-care advice.
