King & Co Tree Nursery celebrate their 40 year anniversary


King and Co is still privately owned by the founding King family, members of which are still keen to provide you with a service that is absolutely top draw. There are no coffee shops or concessions at the Rayne nursery just an obsession with providing and installing top quality trees and hedging. Since the company’s formation, we have worked on so many prestigious projects including the Stansted Rail link, Sizewell Power station, The Braintree bypass and even HMP Chelmsford. Also for many others; Williams F1, Lord R.A.Butler, Felsted and Hallingbury Schools, The RHS, Essex Wildlife Trust, Braxted Park, Ipswich and Martlesham bypass and we even did the clearance for the Essex route of the M25.

We have also won Gold at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and many other awards. Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited King and Co the Tree Nursery as part of Conservative leadership campaign in July, 2019.

Many thanks to all our customers, past and present as we look forward to the next 40 years.

Shopping online

You can buy trees, hedging, shrubs and topiary online by browsing our website.
If you do not see a plant or size that is suitable for you then please call as we stock a wide variety of plants in our tree nursery. It’s worth noting that many other websites sell other people’s stock (i.e. they act as an agent) so you cannot view the products at their own site. At King & Co, all of our advertised plants are available for viewing at our tree nursery in Rayne, near Braintree, situated just over an hours drive out of London.

Our knowledgeable and experienced tree nursery staff are always contactable via phone on 01376 340469 or if you have any questions regarding any of our trees or accessories.

If you cannot see what you require on our website, please complete the enquiry form. We will give it our urgent attention and will get back to you shortly with a solution that meets your needs.
