Our tree nursery was founded in Berlin in 1843. Now it’s in its sixth generation - and still steadily expanding. In the 90s the company moved to Tremmen. In 2003 and 2007 we opened branches in Kleinziethen and Baden-Baden. On our modern production sites we cultivate everything you might expect from a tree nursery on more than 800 hectares, always in best Lorberg quality.
Vigorous, healthy and robust plants develop especially well in our sandy, loamy soil. Brandenburg is in the very favourable climate zone 7a, with temperatures ranging from -30 to +30° C The climate is continental - cold in winter and with low precipitation - leading to excellently acclimatised plants which can deal extremely well with both dry periods and frost.
