Trees are the largest and most permanent plantings in your garden. A good bit of thought should be put into placement and purpose for every tree you plant. Trees are essential in providing a frame, border, or background for your home and property. Trees provide a whole bunch of good stuff like protection from the hot summer sun, which will save energy and thus save you money. Trees can be used as a windbreak, to prevent soil erosion, reduce noise, screen out neighbors, filter dust and pollution, and maintain a better balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide. All these benefits will give you a healthier and more livable space around your home.
There is an enormous variety of trees, differing in shape and form as well as in color and texture of foliage, flowers and bark. Each has its own appeal, from the dark, pointing column of a cypress to the blazing fall color of a Japanese maple, or the patterned cinnamon trunk of a ‘Natchez’ crape myrtle. Come talk to one of our horticulturists about the best tree for your landscape.
