Fall is just about the best time of year to purchase and plant a tree. The soil is warm, the air temperature is cool, and morning and evening dew increase moisture to nurture a new tree. Stop in and see our extensive collection and we can assist you in choosing the tree that is perfect for your landscape and lifestyle needs.
Beautify the Environment
Trees and texture add color to a landscape. They soften the harsh lines of buildings and driveways, while their foliage and blooms add seasonal color and variety.
Tree roots prevent soil from blowing or washing away, minimizing erosion and providing protection for the surrounding landscape.
Provide Wildlife Habitat
Trees provide shelter and food for birds and various small animals, including squirrels, raccoons, insects and more.
Many trees provide fruits, nuts, seeds, sap and berries for human consumption. Wildlife will also rely on the fruit provided by trees.
Through photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxode, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and other poisons from our air and release pure oxygen for us to breathe. One tree can produce enough oxygen for 10 humans for one year!
Cool the Air
Air will remain several degrees cooler in the shade of a tree canopy. This is accomplished by not only blocking the sun rays, but also through transpiration. Tree leaves transpire, or release moisture, which cools the surrounding air. A large tree can release as much as 400 gallons of moisture from its leaves daily.
Reduce Utility Bill
Deciduous trees planted on the south or southwest sides of a home will shade the structure during hot months and reduce air conditioning or other cooling needs. In the winter, with the leaves fallen, the sun is able to warm the structure, reducing heating bills.
Reduce Noise Pollution
Strategically planted trees can dramatically reduce the volume of unwanted noise from loud neighbors, nearby businesses and traffic.
