The new website has been introduced following the 2023 launch of The Hillier Tree Guide, which was the result of five years of in-depth research and expertise. Expanding on that, the newly enhanced online offering offers an extensive image gallery, as well as view detailed information about the sizes and shapes of the trees grown, which can all be easily filtered based on the needs of each project.

In creating the guide and information for the website, Hillier tracked over 200 trees through their lifespan which are all profiled on the website, along with informative descriptions, beautiful illustrations, and multiple colourful images for each tree. To further aid garden designers and landscapers, the website also demonstrates how the trees will adapt and grow over the years as each tree has its own set of helpful illustrative silhouettes which show its progression over 15, 25, and 50 years.

Included is advice covering topics such as shaped trees, feature trees and elm trees. In terms of sustainability, the website offers long-term planning, information on drought-resistant plants in response to rising temperatures and scorching summers, bee-friendly trees, and biodiversity with mixed avenues.

Adam Dunnett, amenity director at Hillier, commented: “Hillier has become renowned among landscaping professionals for our routinely updated informative tree guides. Last year’s edition was so well received that publishing it online with additional information felt a natural step to help customers browse and find the perfect tree for their landscaping projects.”

The company was founded in 1864 by Edwin Hillier and remains a family-run nursery with the fifth generation now actively involved in the family business as it continues to grow. The company employs over 750 staff across its nursery, trees and 22 garden centre divisions, and grows over one million plants a year.
