In 1906, the brothers Heinrich and Johannes Kühnen founded the the company Gebr. Kühnen oHG nursery dedicated solely to growing fruit trees in Wedel.
In 1953, Hans-Heinrich Kühnen took over operations, which his sons Dieter and Heino Kühnen managed together from 1981-2004. From 2004 on, Andreas Kühnen joined the management team. Since 2016, Andreas has continued to manage the team together with his cousin Hendrik Kühnen.
Kühnen Baumschulen GmbH was founded in 2016 to market the trees produced by the OHG.
The nursery has now grown in size to cover approximately 70 hectares with 10 hectares of fruit trees, 30 hectares of trees, 20 hectares of solitary trees and 10 hectarees of conifers.
The Kühnen brothers tree nursery has specialised in the areas of deciduous trees, conifers and fruit trees and is a recognised training establishment as well as a certified ZgG business since October 2016.
