"The Growing of trees
is a lesson in Patience. They can be assisted, but never rushed"
It is now summertime and we do not
sell or plant trees/shrubs in the summer as the heat creates an unnecessary
stress on the plants. It is better to wait until fall and plant them then.
Fall planting season for evergreens begins
on Sep. 11th and for deciduous trees is October 2nd.
Take the summer to plan or stop by and talk about any plantings, and get your
trees reserved, then you will be ready for an early fall planting.
Remember this summer, any trees planted in
the last two years should be watered well every 10 days if you do not get an
inch of rain each week.
Potted trees and shrubs are planted in the fall
Summer hours do vary as we are
out taking care of the trees, so just call or leave message or E-mail us anytime--24/7
Our 2017 catalogs are available, if you need one leave your name and address by E-mail below,
or call us and we will
send you one.

Kelly Tree Farm Windbreak
Brad and Patty Manuel from Olin, IA with their
state award from Soil and Water Districts for Best Windbreak.
We planned, provided the trees and planted the windbreak in 2001.
A few of our over 30,000 potted leaf trees and
We do plant trees/shrubs through out Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin,
Roots from a walnut tree only 6 months old,
the tap root has been cut in a process called undercutting. This is done
during July and the tree immediately stops all top growth and then makes many
lateral roots that are perfect for planting in the following spring. We do
this with most of our trees such as oaks, hickory, pecan, evergreens, and many

Remember that anyone can sell you a tree but if it does not survive
or grows poorly in your area you have lost more than the price of
the tree you have lost your time and that is something that cannot
be replaced, Thank you for stopping by and hope to hear from you.
