Red Maple Tree

The Red Maple tree is a native flowering shade tree

in a large part of eastern America that grows from
Canada and Maine south to Southern Florida. The
Red Maple Tree has leaves that are quite variable in
size growing from 2 to 6 inches wide, and three lobes
generally, but can occasionally have 5 lobes. In
native forest, the Red Maple tree thrives in bottom
moist lands such as swamps, but will also grow well
in upland soil profiles, apparently unaffected by
stresses of acid soils or alkaline soils. Native
American Red Maple trees are well adapted for
growing in most of the United States of America and
can be grown as a timber tree or a shade tree.

Green Ash Tree

The Green Ash tree is a native American tree

that was first discovered growing near
Philadelphia, PA. in 1790 by the famous
American botanist, John Bartram. It is very
unusual to find a tree as cold hardy as the
Green Ash tree that thrives in the USDA zones
2-9. The Green Ash tree is one of the most
popular fast growing trees in the United States
and quickly provides a cooling shade in city
parks, commercial building and homes.

Japanese Red Leaf Maple


Certain cultivars of Red Leaf Japanese Maples grow

red leaves in the spring that maintain the redness,
and other clones have red leafs in the spring and fall
but briefly during the summer will turn green. The Fall
colors of the Japanese Maple leaves are dramatically
intense and redder, that can be seen during the
regular growing season, and the leaves persist on the
trees for long periods

Pink Flowering Peach Tree

The large double flowers of the Pink Peach

Tree last well over a two week period. Your
season of flowering will be considerably
extended from this pink hybrid peach that
blooms in March with masses of clustered
blossoms. The Pink Flowering Peach can
make excellent borders for landscaping,
and the Pink Flowering Peach tree clusters
are great for a winter cut flower.

Kwanzan Flowering Cherry

The Kwanzan Flowering Cherry Tree grows to 20 feet in
height and 16 feet in width and the new coppery-bronze
foliage matures to a rich green color with reddishcopper fall color. The double flowering lacy pink blooms
of the Kwanzan flowering cultivar of the Japanese
Flowering Cherry tree form fluffy globe units that will
completely cover the stems and branches at the
flowering climax. Kwanzan Flowering Cherry Trees
bloom even at a young age and can be seen flowering
in early spring. The Kwanzan Flowering Cherry Tree
produces beautiful light red and pink colored flowers
when in bloom, and this tree is one of our most popular
cherry blossom trees. The black bark of a mature
Kwanzan Flowering Cherry tree contrasts pleasantly
with the bright pink, double flowers that cover most of
the branches.

Sourwood Tree

The new growth that appears is a bronze color with

large, dark-green leaves that turn orange and
scarlet in color in the Fall. The Sourwood Tree is a
slow grower with an upright oval crown that is 25-30
feet high and 20 feet wide. In the late Summer,
drooping clusters of fragrant Lily-of-the-Valley-like
white flowers add an interesting and unique look to
the Sourwood Tree.

Tulip Poplar Tree

The Tulip Poplar Tree has only a 4

lobed leaf, giving the tree a
beautifully unique and almost odd
appearance. Tulip Poplars trees grow
rather rapidly if planted in good
moist soil and are one of the tallest
naturally growing trees in the
Eastern U.S. The tulip-shaped flower
is yellow with a touch of green in the
six petals. The Tulip Poplar Tree is a
tall, fast-growing shade tree that
forms a symmetrical pyramid and
matures at a height of 80 ft.

Winged Elm Tree

Deemed "Florida Plant of the Year" in 1999, the

Winged Elm is a deciduous tree that grows 40-60' tall
with a dark brown trunk and dark green foliage.
Grows in zones: 5 - 9
The seeds of the Winged Elm Tree will attract many
types of game birds to your landscape. The Winged
Elm Tree is very popular to plant as a shade tree,
because of the fast growth and exotic bark on the
twigs they appear winged. Some gardeners think the
winged parts of the stems and twigs are a growing
fungus, but that is only a peculiar type of bark
growth that distinguishes this tree from the other

American Elm Tree

The native American Elm Tree can grow up to

100 ft. tall with trunks 4 ft. wide. This fastgrowing American Elm Tree greatly reduces the
pollution of car exhaust fumes when planted
along city streets. Elm Tree seeds are flat and
light in weight, making them easy to spread by
the wind as well as by animals. Song birds,
squirrels, rabbits and deer love the seeds,
leaves and twigs of the American Elm Tree, and
bees and butterflies love to visit and pollinate
the flowers. As a shade tree the American elm
tree is fast growing to provide shady landscape
cover and can save a homeowner lots of money
by reducing the ridiculously excessive power

Fantasy Maple Tree

The 'Fantasy Maple' Trees were introduced

into commerce through the U.S. National
Arboretum research project. During the Spring
the Fantasy Maple tree buds burst into growth
early in the spring, revealing their dense
medium-green colored leaves with a
consistent coloration, until the ruby red color
becomes the most spectacular specimen in
the fall. The bright, waxy, green leaves of the
Fantasy Maple Tree begin to turn a brilliant
red-orange color in the fall, even in warm very
climates. Cold hardy maple trees are very
valuable trees to plant in the Northern States,
and this outstanding hybrid maple tree is very
adaptable to the winter's frigid winters,
surviving well in USDA zones 4-8

Pond Cypress Tree

The Pond Cypress helps create a very unique

habitat for wildlife. Pond Cypress Trees tend to
grow in between the deep, wet, nutrient rich
swamp and the damp, nutrient poor prairie. This
area between two extremes attracts wildlife
from both regions. A Pond Cypress Tree usually
is smaller than a Bald Cypress but can
withstand more abrupt changes in
environmental and water conditions.The wood is
resistant to decay and is important in boat and
greenhouse construction, and was once in high
demand for fence posts and roofing shingles.

Sycamore Tree

The Sycamore Tree provides good shade

in the Summer and is highly
recommended to be planted in cities,
along streets. The tree grows into a huge
shade tree that is very picturesque,
rugged and is very tolerant of varying soil
and growing conditions. When planted as
an isolated specimen tree in a park or
near your home, the Sycamore tree
presents a regular, rounded crown. The
Sycamore tree grows well in dry areas and
can endure droughts easily, and
surprisingly these trees are found growing
near woods in wetlands. The Sycamore
tree has colorful bark and is long lived,
and it is often planted in rows along

Chinese Elm Tree

The Chinese Elm Tree has slender, angular arching

branches, and at maturity the tree sometimes
reaches 60 feet in height and is one of the fastest
growing trees in the United States. This elm is a
favorite shade tree for many homeowners to
establish near the home for a quick shade and to
reduce the outrageously high cost of electric
power bills. The Chinese Elm Tree produces a
dense shade in a short time that is perfect for
shading and for enjoying an outside picnic or an
afternoon nap. The toothed leaves of the tree are
very small, and the leaves turn into a brilliant gold
color during the Fall. Chinese elm trees can grow
up to 6 feet in a single season when the tree is
first planted, and because the leaves are so small,
they are easy to rake in the fall, and they seem to
virtually disintegrate, because the leaves are also
very thin and short.
