trees (e.g. Acer, Crataegus, Fagus, Quercus) but also offers more exotic species (Catalpa, Gleditsia, Koelreuteria, Liquidambar, Liriodendron, Pauwlonia, etc.), which have become popular homegrown specialties.

The sizes 8/10cm till 12/14cm are transplanted twice. Bigger sizes, from 14/16cm up to 25/30cm have been transplanted at least 3 or 4 times. Several varieties are available in different shapes: sphere-trained, column or cubic shaped, even rather rare species are supplied at your request. The prices in this catalogue are susceptible to changes whenever certain species happen to run out of stock. When in need of bigger sizes or greater number, do not hesitate to contact us.

Our offices’ central location in the middle of a nursery of 22ha as well as the high degree of mechanization

enables us to prepare the orders very quickly, to fully answer your needs. Our location near the junction of two main motorways, the N49 & R4, makes it very convenient to reach us. We would really be delighted to welcome

you for a visit at our nursery. Our policy is to have a good understanding and personal contact with each of our customers, because this proved to be the solid basis for any commercial relationship. Do not hesitate to contact us, we will gladly be of assistance.

Sylva nurseries is specialized in the cultivation and commercialization of all hardy tree nursery varieties.

The nursery has a surface of nearly 85ha, with a production of about 20 million plants.

Sylva produces over more than 100 varieties of trees and shrubs in its own nursery. The main varieties are amongst others: fagus, quercus, acer, alnus, prunus, populus and different conifers such as pseudotsuga, picea, larix, taxus, pinus, …

About 20 % of these trees are destined for the Belgian market. 80 % is exported to all European countries, but also to the USA, Canada, China and North Africa.

The reasons for the good quality of our forest and hedging plants are diverse: the mild sea climate and the good sandy soils, and more in particular: the growing methods and the severe quality standards for the grading of the plants. In order to keep the plants in good condition after lifting, 3 new cold stores were built with a total capacity of 6000 m³.

Furthermore we guarantee the genetic quality of the plants by purchasing basic material from selected and genetically high grade forests or seed orchards throughout Europe. That’s how we can offer our client forest plants that are well adapted to the climatological conditions wherever he wants to reforest.

Sylva stands for environmental friendly and sustainable production. Sylva is a MPS (Environment Project Floriculture) member since 1997 and has ever since obtained the MPS A-label. Furthermore, Sylva was one of the first open field nurseries to obtain the MPS GAP (Good Agricultural Practice) certificate in 2010.

In August 2009 Sylva was elected winner of the “Belgian Horticulturist of the Year 2009” contest and was awarded “International Grower of the Year 2009” in Zaragoza, Spain.

Johan van Herrewege has incorporated the long experience of four generations in his growing export- nursery. Johan's great grandfather started the company in the late 1800's. His father, Willem, was the pioneer, who trekked to Canada in the early 1950's in search for new customers in Quebec and Ontario (At that time obstructive regulations such as the washing of the roots, were not operative.) The new name JVH- The Green Line emerged in 1973.

Since 1980 Johan and his wife, Godelieve, visit customers in Eastern Canada and since 1997 they started to scout the West Coast and beautiful B. C. They have seen significant growth in their new BC market.

Every spring and summer Johan sees his customers all over Europe. He believes personal contact is very important to sales success. In August he travels throughout Eastern and Western Canada. The knowledge of many foreign languages enables him to communicate with most of his customers in their own mother- tongue. This is a great asset and is appreciated everywhere.

Today, JVH Nurseries ships plants to different European countries, Canada, USA, Japan, China, Russia, South-Africa, Middle East, Turkey, Central and Latin America.

He has acquired years of experience in shipping plants all over the world, even in the Southern Hemisphere. There he must overcome an additional challenge, namely the opposite seasons. This means shipping dormant plants, when plants are fully alive in summer here.

In recognition of his unique and successful exports to South-Africa, Johan along with 19 other 'Captains of Industry' were invited by the prime Minister to join him on his state visit to South-Africa. Johan states, 'The most remarkable of all the official events was the welcoming by the charismatic ex-president Nelson Mandela. This privileged invitation and the great interest of the media impressed our customers and stimulated our business.'
