British Hardwood Tree Nursery Limited (BHT) are at the very centre of the UK’s plant supply and tree protection business in more ways than one. Nestled in the heart of rural England in the Lincolnshire countryside, BHT are well-prepared and well-positioned for the forthcoming bare root season – and are ready to expand yet further.
BHT are already benefitting from recent site investment in 2016, increasing capacity for plant protection and planting accessories with a new shed and extra mezzanine level. Riding on the success of this expansion, the company have now committed to a further mezzanine level in another shed.
In total, this means capacity will now span across five warehouses. The new mezzanine floor in one warehouse will add to the other mezzanine added last year. This means covered storage capacity will soon be over 21,000 square feet.
This further investment commitment could not have come at a better time. With the larger planting contracts poised for the bare root season, BHT have taken their latest deliveries of Tubex plant protection, shelters, stakes, ties and planting accessories. As one of Tubex’s select distributors and with a network to every corner of the UK, BHT are more than ready for the bare root season.
A major player in the UK forestry, farming, estate and landscaping sectors, BHT have also improved site access with a new commercial entrance. This improves delivery flow, speeds up stock management and generally affords greater efficiencies on site in their busiest periods.
The company are supporters and suppliers to land owners who will receive increased funding for planting projects when the extra £13m becomes available in the application window from January 2018.
