After the establishment of Van den Berk Limited in 2019, Van den Berk has now announced the establishment of a nursery in the UK.
The decision to set-up a dedicated location in the UK was made following a strong demand from clients and specifiers for specimen trees and a desire to provide a quality service throughout the year.
Van den Berk contracted a plot in Mirfield, just off the M62 and M1 junctions. The nursery will be a shop window for high quality, specialist trees, produced in the 450ha nursery in The Netherlands, and will have facilities for growing trees in air-pots and containers. The new location will also provide capacity to quarantine trees to serve the best biosecurity practices.
The preparatory work in Mirfield is in full swing now and the nursery can be visited by appointment from mid-March onwards.
Van den Berk has made biosecurity a top priority and its policies and accreditations go beyond the industry requirements. Its horticultural practices are freely available to download – visit: https://www.vdberk.com/about-us/bio-security/
