Shade Tree Collection (5 trees)

Shade Tree Collection
Shade trees save energy. In addition to keeping us cool in summer or slowing winds for winter warmth, trees clean the air, reduce sunlight damage, and lower utility costs. They also provide spring and fall color and wildlife habitat. This shade tree package combines medium and large-sized trees with slow to fast growth rates.

Natural Root and Containerized Trees

Natural root (also called bare root) trees are shipped without soil around their roots. They are shipped when dormant in the spring and fall seasons. We dip the roots in a hydrating gel to keep them moist during shipping.

There are a number of advantages to natural root trees:

  • They are very affordable.
  • Their roots re-establish themselves well once they are planted in their permanent location.
  • They are easy to plant at the correct depth.

The Urban Horticulture Institute at Cornell University has an interesting article about the benefits of planting natural root trees. Look for the PDF entitled Creating the Urban Forest: The Bare Root Method

Potted (also called containerized) trees come in 4" containers.
