Mr. Tim Van Hulle, Mr. Geert Caignau
We are the Belgian producer, wholesaler and exporter of forest and hedging plants, which we cultivate in a responsible way for a green environment.
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. The original surface area covered about 2 hectares. With the transfer of the parental company to the sons in 1972, a private limited company was founded: SYLVA Ltd.
Today SYLVA nurseries covers about 80 hectares and apart from 20 permanent employees, it engages also over 20 seasonal workers. The production reaches about 20 million forest plants per year. In our nursery we produce plants such as Fagus, Quercus, Castanea, Corylus, Prunus… Have a look at our catalogue.
