Trees

We have many varieties of shade trees available. Listed below are some of the trees we carry, including the most popular and best varieties for our area. If you are looking for a particular tree, please call us for availability and pricing.

Deciduous Trees:

These are trees that shed their leaves for the winter, rather than throughout the year like evergreen trees do. Some good selections for our area are  Fruitless Mulberry and Raywood Ash (pictured above), Chinese Pistache, Drake's Chinese Elm, and Tipu Tree (pictured below).  These are large trees, reaching 40 ft. or more in height and width.

Evergreen Trees:

These are trees that have leaves year round. They shed older leaves mainly in spring and fall. Some larger shade trees we recommend are Oaks (including Live Oak and Cork Oak), California Pepper Tree, and Fern Pines (these are not an actual pine tree). These trees can reach 40 feet or more tall and wide.
