We grow all hardy nursery varieties adapted to all over Europe. Our sandy soil and the mild sea climate are ideal for the production of high quality plants. We offer understocks, shrubs, bushes, forest and hedging plants. The VAN HULLE family has been active in the field of forest tree cultivation in Flanders since 1750. The company at Waarschoot was founded in 1936 by Remi Van Hulle and his wife Paula Coppens and the original surface area covered about 2 hectares. Today SYLVA nurseries covers about 80 hectares. Our production reaches about 20 million forest plants per year, as for instance Fagus, Quercus, Fraxinus, Castanea, Corylus… and 80% of the turnover is allocated to all European countries and some chosen countries beyond Europe.
The success of our tree nursery is based on some important trump cards, which guarantee the quality of the material:
- the genetic quality of the basic material,
- the light sandy and fertile soil,
- the skilled method of cultivating,
- the excellent grading,
- the freshness of the plants,
- years of experience and know-how.
