Larch, Cedar + Pine Wood

A customer recently emailed us about planting a Larch, Cedar and Pine woodland. Here's his question:

"Hi, I have about 2 acres which i would like to create into a wood
could you advise which of the above trees would be the fastest growing, and expected grouth rate, and the quantity required for 2 acres.
Also the size of trees you could supply and price."

We can't confirm which of the 3 trees would be the fastest growing as it would depend upon your conditions/light etc. However we have found the larch and pine are pretty fast growers. Bear in mind that Larch, Corsican and Scots Pine are light demanders. For amenity woodland we would recommend you break your area down to scale on some paper into 3mx3m boxes and plant one tree per box.

All of our trees are young 1-2 year old trees. They are of good hardy quality, Scottish grown from UK seed stock and are grown in Rootrainers, which are a bit like large plug plants so this means they can be planted year round. If you are planting a wood, we would recommend that you don't plant during a dry summer as the species do need water to grow and establish.
