News and Information


Ash trees for the city!

The flowering ash, also know as manna ash or Fraxinus ornus, is particularly well suited as a street tree because it tolerates road salt and is only affected by external influences when situated in paved locations. The dryness that often occurs in city locations is also hardly an issue for the tree. And its origin? Central and eastern North America!

Nursery clearly explained

The Lorenz von Ehren nursery gives you insights behind the scenes. How are trees cleared? What cutting techniques are there? How is summer shipping carried out? These are just three of many nursery-related topics which the Lorenz von Ehren nursery has reviewed in film format for enthusiasts.
The films are now available on our company’s YouTube channel “Baumschule Lorenz von Ehren” and on our homepage

Climate Change also brings wet Feet

This will be a consequence of changed rainfall patterns due to global warming, the scientists determined and thus made flooding on rivers the focus of observation once again. Without structural countermeasures the number of persons affected by flooding events in Germany alone would rise from 0.1 to 0.7 million.
It will be worse, if we, according to the study, do not limit anthropogenic global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, because even structural adjustments will be difficult then. READ MORE
