Welcome to The Hillier Designers Guide

Within this site is a list of trees suitable for landscapes and urbanscapes alike, some are old favourites, some are under used but equally worthy, others are recent cultivars often selected to serve a particular purpose.

Each tree is photographed to illustrate its form and any other characteristics which makes it stand out.  There is also a comprehensive description with an indication of availability and height at maturity.  We have kept the selections within our site to trees that are commercially available.

There is an abundance of information to assist the specifier and contractor alike - for example, the dimensions and weights of root-balls and containers.

We hope you enjoy this site and find it a useful tool.  May we take this opportunity to assure you of our commitment to an efficient service and to supply high quality, professionally home-grown trees.
