"The Growing of trees is a lesson in Patience. They can be assisted, but never rushed"     Kevin Kelly


Our fall selling and planting season begins on Sep 15th.


Fall is an excellent time to plant potted trees as it give the roots time to grow in the fall, without any top growth.  We do spray all our evergreens that we sell, with an anti desiccant to prevent drying out in the wintertime.


Now is the time to plan for a fall planting.  Let us know if we can help with the planning or installation of your trees this fall.

Kelly Tree Farm Windbreak Wins Award!

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 evergreen trees.

   We do plant trees/shrubs through out Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nebraska

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 others.

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.
