Acer campestre (Field Maple)
Widely distributed through most of Europe, southern Scandinavia and western Asia, the Field Maple with its burrs (or knots) produces "birds eye" maple, which was widely used in making furniture and veneers until the early Victorian era.
Native to England, but not Scotland or Ireland, this small to medium tree of rounded form was widely used in the Middle Ages for making musical instruments.
In autumn acer campestre leaves turn not just clear yellow, but also red and golden brown.
It thrives in rich, well drained soils, but does well in virtually any soil type, and will readily tolerate drought, soil compaction and air pollution. A versatile, resilient and attractive species with a wide range of uses.
Available both as multi-stems and single stem specimens.
Field Maple also make an excellent hedgerow plant. Being native, it is very ‘wildlife friendly’ and can cope well with rough pruning during the dormant season to keep the hedge to shape. Many of the clones listed are far more suitable for urban and street planting as they form crowns of more regular shape than their parent.
Mature height: 10-15m+

You may have noticed that there are 2 sets of pricing for each tree and tree size.
The purpose of this is to give a discounted price for people whom are buying in bulk (i.e. 10 plus trees).
This applies to all trees and you DO NOT need to buy all of the same tree for this discount to be applied (i.e. you can mix up the species and sizes)
This will work on the website as follows:
1. Begin to fill the basket of the trees you require. They will be added to your basket originally at the higher price.
2. Once you have 9 items in your basket, upon adding the next one (to total 10 +), the pricing from then on will automatically change to the lower pricing and be adjusted so that all of your items already selected are then at the lower price.
Once an order has been placed online, you will receive notification from Barcham Tree that your order has been received and processed.
For tree orders of ten trees or more, you should allow 5-10 working days from the date of order for delivery. For orders of less than 10 trees, 20 working days should be allowed for delivery. This is an approximation of a realistic lead time, yet we will of course endeavour to deliver your order to you as soon as is possible and convenient to you.

The trees will be delivered on either a trailer or small lorry, with the use of articulated Lorries where the order requires and/or access allows.
Delivery of the trees is to kerbside, front garden or to the nearest point where access allows, except for "Instant" sized tree orders in which machinery will be required at the point of delivery to facilitate movement to the planting position. Drivers are unable to move trees once onsite.
