Since January 2017 Lappen (German: Baumschule Lappen) has been undergoing a dramatic process of renewal and is transforming itself more vigorously into a customer-oriented service company. The “new” Lappen tree nursery is investing in its successful corporate culture: since 2017 new employees have been engaged, the shrubs have been retrained and thousands of new trees propagated and grown to usable size.
The protected location on the Lower Rhine Embayment is excellently suited as a location for a tree nursery. The reasons for this are the climate, the soil and the location in the centre of Europe. An optimum climate prevails in the Lower Rhine region: it not only ensures continuous and healthy plant growth, but also guarantees an almost uninterrupted supply of trees in winter.
