Trees

NEWS from the Nursery!

 Spring is on our doorstep and as usual, our nursery crew has been busy unloading this season's tree and shrub offerings.  Some interesting species that we have received include:

ZONE 5 or ZONE 6?

You probably hadn't noticed, but while the debate over whether or not our climate is changing and our planet is experiencing a general warming trend, the nation's hardiness zone maps were reconfigured several years ago. So, as you read this while looking out over another fresh coating of snow, and feeling single digit temperatures for the umpteenth time this winter, keep a wary mind over what I'm about to tell you!

Trees for small or narrow spaces

In the urban community, we are finding, more and more, that the desire to plant trees in smaller, more confined spaces is becoming more popular. Folks with smaller yards are still seeking to obstruct a view or provide shade to a deck or patio but think they are limited because the space they have available won't handle a large shade tree. We have recently stocked our nursery with several choices of trees that lend themselves to situations such as this. For planting in the strip between the street and sidewalk, we are recommending the versatile Upright European Hornbeam.

Spring Forward

It's that time of the year when we all wait with unbridled anticipation for the first color of the fresh, new year in the landscape!  As the end of one of the mildest winters in recent memory nears
