Local authorities in Great Britain have been procuring their plants and trees from The Lappen tree nursery in the Lower Rhine region for many years. The reasons for this are multifaceted: firstly, Lappen supports local authority representatives during the public procurement process. For example, this encompasses quality requirements, descriptions in the national language, plant sizes and compliance with the FLL quality regulations. Secondly, the tree nursery maintains a wide assortment of high-quality plants in large numbers, especially to meet the demands of local authorities. For lining avenues, in particular, the trees from Lappen are characterized by their homogeneous batch sizes which ensure the creation of a uniformed and well-maintained appearance. This is apparent, for instance, in the high-quality avenue trees that line the way to the London Eye in the English metropolis.
