"It's quite an operation," sighs castle managerr Paul Thijssen while he keeps an eye on the tilted tree. A spring storm in March last year ended the 110-year-old chestnut which provided the second courtyard of the castle of shadow. Shame, because the tree was the scene of many weddings and celebrations.

At Castle Heeze they all quick agreed to a replacement tree, but hereby the job was not done yet. " “There were many meetings necessary and experts have repeatedly come to see and measure”, says Thijssen. "Actually, we needed a heavier crane, but it did not fit through the castle gates."

Finally, it took the experts about six hours to do the costly job. For a moment, it seemed that the twenty year old chestnut would fall on the roof of the monumental castle. But the ooh's and aah's from the onlooking crowd, did not disconcert the workmen. 

With heavy equipment from Van den Berk Nurseries and gardener Willemse they get the eight-ton and fifteen-meter high chestnut tree finally in place.

Cégünk idén ünnepli fennállásának 75. évfordulóját. Erre természetesen büszkék vagyunk, hiszen egészséges családi vállalkozás vagyunk, amely az elmúlt évtizedben szépen növekedett. Mintegy 500 hektárnyi területen, több mint 100 szakértő munkatárssal, és 1750 fajtából és kultivárból álló választékkal, az ágazaton belül Európa egyik legjelentősebb faiskolájává váltunk. Mivel a legutóbbi években is sokat fordítottunk a növényanyagra, a műszaki innovációra, szakmai ismereteink fejlesztésére és marketingre, az Európa nagy részén uralkodó nehéz piaci körülmények ellenére is várakozással telve tekintünk az előttünk álló évekre.

Van den Berk nursery at Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flower Show is the most important garden exhibition of the world. Van den Berk nurseries are very pleased to have delivered trees for The Laurent-Perrier Bicentenary Garden. 30 screen shaped Fagus sylvatica Atropunicea (girth 30-35 cm) and 1 Pyrus communis Charneux (girth 100-120 cm) are planted in the garden of the award-winning designer Arne Maynard. All elements of the garden have been carefully handcrafted and are complemented by a soft planting scheme. Inspired by Laurent-Perrier’s 200 year heritage of time-honoured methods and reputation for creating pioneering champagnes, the garden pays exacting attention to detail, combining traditional and contemporary elements to exude elegance through its planting and landscaping.

Jan van Vechel 25 éves évfordulója

Jan van Vechel sok partnerünk számára ismerős jelenség. Nem is lehet ez másként, hiszen Jan immáron 25 éve dolgozik a Van den Berknél. Jan a „földeken” kezdte a karrierjét, mára pedig hosszú évek óta ő az angliai, írországi és belgiumi piacok felelőse. Az elmúlt 25 év során Jan felbecsülhetetlen tudásra tett szert a fák területén. Ennek, valamint pozitív beállítottságának köszönhetően partnereink számára egy kellemes beszélgetőpartner, számunkra pedig egy rendkívül nagyra tartott munkatárs! Gratulálunk, Jan! Itt jegyezzük meg, hogy még több ilyen jelentős évforduló várható a Van den Berk Faiskoláknál, hiszen szerencsére több hasonlóan elhivatott szakemberrel is dicsekedhetünk.

Plane trees for Garden Festival Chaumont (F)

This summer the 20th staging of the International Garden Festival Chaumont-sur-Loire will take place in the central area of France. The festival has been providing a unique panorama of landscape design all over the world since 1992. In 20 seasons, almost 500 gardens have been designed, which are prototypes of the gardens of the future. Also this year, garden designers have sent in their ideas and 30 of the designs were selected. Earlier this year the selected garden designs were constructed and together they form a fine collection of festival gardens. Visitors can admire the results in the beautiful setting of the castle of Chaumont-sur-Loire.
One of the winning designs was from the young designers of PIT Garden and Landscape Architects from Holland. They were looking for partners to realize their ideas and found Van den Berk Nurseries prepared to sponsor the trees. We delivered the 7 iconic roof shape plane trees.  For more information look at;

Special trees for Floriade 2012

“Be part of the theatre in nature, get closer to the quality of life.”
This is the slogan for Floriade 2012. The World Horticultural Expo, held in the Netherlands every ten years, will open its doors on April 5, 2012. This time the event will take place in Venlo, in the Southeast of the Netherlands, near the German border. Trees will be playing a very important role in the large grounds, measuring 66 hectares. In the last few years, more than a thousand trees have been planted. Starting points in the planting scheme were diversity and special species.

Tree-lined avenue with 120 species
A central axis runs from the main entrance into the park. This axis has been developed into a tree-lined avenue with 120 different types of avenue and street trees. A beautiful range of leaf colours has been selected, varying from green and yellow to red and variegated. The same is true for the leaf shapes and habit, from delicate and transparent to very dense leaves which are larger than your hand. Signs with names and descriptions will all be placed with the trees, ensuring that the avenue inspires all visitors, both private and professional visitors, when it comes to tree selection. When the Floriade ends in October 2012, the avenue will become the green leisure area of the future Venlo GreenPark.

Supplies since 2008
Van den Berk Nurseries has been involved with the Floriade since 2007. After long consultations, trees for the avenue and the five different themed fields were selected at the nursery. Mostly larger trees were selected, from stem girths 25-30 to 45-50. Already in February 2008, the first trees were put on a transport to Venlo, to give them plenty of time to get used to their new location, before showing them to the public. The result is an impressive collection with many special species. The tree list on the following page gives you an indication of the types of trees Van den Berk has supplied for the Floriade.

10-year anniversary of BALI Awards sponsoring

Van den Berk Nurseries has been a sponsor of the BALI Awards since 2001. Every year, BALI, the British Organisation of Landscape Industries, organises a gathering in December in which awards are presented for the best landscape projects. Traditionally this occurs during a large-scale event in which all major British landscapers are present. To mark the 10th anniversary of their role as sponsor, this year Van den Berk provided 60 tree books, one for each table. They were auctioned off during the gathering on 3 December. The proceeds went to Greenfingers' and 'the Geoffrey Chalk Scholarship'
