Autumn is “leaf season,” nature’s annual color festival. Environmental factors and the genetic makeup of the trees determine the intensity and times of peak color, with factors varying from tree to tree and region to region. The trees in this package are selected for the beauty of their fall foliage. Displaying their distinctive colors, the sugar maples turn brilliant shades of yellow, orange, or red; the scarlet oaks offer shades of scarlet, russet red, or brown; the red oaks change to russet red, bright red, or yellow-brown; the tuliptrees turn to golden or lemon yellow; and the paper birches bring bright yellow hues to your landscape. These trees will also provide spring color, shade, privacy, and wildlife habitat.

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:
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.
