The Lap­pen tree nurs­ery was estab­lished in the Low­er Rhine region in 1894 and today num­bers among the top 5 tree nurs­eries in Europe. Whether open green spaces, greened build­ings in urban areas, botan­i­cal gar­dens, pri­vate gar­dens or mag­nif­i­cent avenues in Ger­many, France, Switzer­land, Great Britain, Rus­sia, Ukraine or the Benelux coun­tries – the trees that pro­vide air, shade and tran­quil­li­ty for peo­ple often orig­i­nate from Lappen.

On 650 hectares of open land some 130 employ­ees cul­ti­vate around 300,000 trees. Fur­ther­more, hedges, shrubs, green­ery and ros­es are also offered. Cus­tomers are there­fore able to choose from up to 9,000 dif­fer­ent high-qual­i­ty plants: from avenue trees to soli­tary trees, from shrubs and hand-formed plants to small bush­es or large impos­ing trees.

Reg­u­lar selec­tion, trans­plant­i­ng and prun­ing ensures that the shrubs are prop­er­ly pre­pared for grow­ing quick­ly and sus­tain­ably after trans­plant­i­ng them to their new location.

The Lap­pen tree nurs­ery offers pub­lic sec­tor cus­tomers, land­scape archi­tects, gar­den­ing and land­scap­ing firms and ambi­tious pri­vate indi­vid­u­als a wide assort­ment of high-qual­i­ty plants in tra­di­tion­al or more mod­ern shapes – either trained to strict geo­met­ri­cal forms or indi­vid­u­al­ly grown into  a strik­ing habi­tus. The tree nurs­ery rounds off its assort­ment of plants with com­mer­cial goods that have been sub­ject­ed to strict qual­i­ty con­trols. The well-known strengths of Lap­pen play a sig­nif­i­cant role here: new trends and vari­eties, the logis­tics con­cept, the soil and the cli­mate of the Low­er Rhine region – as well as the resilience of the trees themselves.
