Bernhard von Ehren 


As managing partner, Bernhard von Ehren is the fifth generation of the family to run the nursery. For over 155 years, the family business has been producing innovatively pruned topiaries, characterful solitary trees, magnificent avenue trees, multi-stemmed trees and shrubs, striking fruit trees, conifers and individual large bonsai.
And the potential urban trees of the future! 

“We sell time – the time it takes to see a tree grow. You will find this time with us, because we cultivate trees that are already mature. Visit us in our nursery. Allow yourself to be won over by the quality and individuality of our trees."

Bernhard von Ehren,
managing partner

Passion and commitment to trees

Originally, Bernhard von Ehren dreamed of becoming a pilot, but the attraction of continuing the family business in the fifth generation prevailed and so flying became one of his most fascinating hobbies.

"Trees are living beings and like everyone else, they suffer from unfavourable environmental conditions. With the conditions that we sometimes expect city trees to put up with, my sympathy goes out to them. I would like to go even further: the sight of a formerly magnificent tree, which is now just ‘languishing’, makes me downright angry." (Bernhard von Ehren)
