About New Wood Trees Nursery

New Wood Tree NurseryPhilip Nieuwoudt (which translates to New Wood), the founder of New Wood Trees, studied Horticulture in South Africa where he was involved in a number of garden design projects.

As part of his Horticulture Diploma he was very fortunate to undertake most of his practical studies at the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens situated on the slopes of Table Mountain, Cape Town. It was there that his love for plants and especially trees developed.

Philip has been working in the UK since 2004 where he obtained a position with one of the biggest tree nurseries in the country.  Trees became his passion and New Wood Trees was born.

Philip is a member of the world-renowned International Dendrology Society (IDS).

Our plants

New Wood Trees specialises in multi-stem trees which are pruned up as high as possible to create a crown, allowing underplanting and adequate space under the trees for seating etc.  The tree sizes range from small to medium at maturity and are all sold large enough to make an immediate impact.
