"The Growing of trees
is a lesson in Patience. They can be assisted, but never rushed" Kevin
It is now Summertime. We are no longer selling or
planting any trees until Sep 15th. With the heat of the summer it is
better to wait until fall now rather than trying to plant something and try to
keep it alive threw the summer season. Tree roots grow very little during
the hot summer season.
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.
Good weed/grass control around your trees and
watering about every 10 days if it gets dry, is the best thing you can do for
your new trees this summer.
Hours in the summer
As we are out taking care of our trees and X-mas trees all
summer we do not have any regular hours. If you would like to stop by,
best to call or E-mail us a day or so ahead of time to set up a time so we will
not miss you.

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.
