Windbreak and Yard Evergreen Trees
Bareroot - Potted - Bagged
Norway Spruce
Just a few of our over 30,000 potted trees.

For in-depth descriptions and pictures of our Windbreak trees go to our sister-site-- windbreaktrees.com

We also sell Planting Spades.

We sell bare root, grown in the pot and bagged evergreen trees

Be careful selecting potted trees for your planting, there are many businesses that say they sell potted trees.  It is really a bare root tree put in a pot with soil and immediately sold.  If a tree has not grown at least one year in the pot you are not getting a potted tree and the complete root system you need for survival.  To tell if it is a potted tree slide the tree out of the pot and the root mass should retain its shape and hold together when removed from the container.  If all the soil falls off, it is a bare root tree and should be at bare root prices.  A potted tree with its complete root system will hold on to most of its soil and you are getting what you pay for.

For over 40 years we have looked at windbreaks in Iowa and have decided that these species below have stood the test of time and Iowa's unpredictable climate. Most windbreak trees we plant can live over 100 years. We like Norway Spruce so much we've created a sister-site just for them, norwayspruce.com. We here at KTF have written up our own specifications on proper windbreak design for Iowa. Please let us know if you would like our brochure on how to set up your windbreak.  Our quantity discount 51+ on potted evergreens applies to plants that are picked up here, it does not apply to trees we plant, send, or deliver.

The bare root trees up to 3 ft tall can be shipped UPS.  Larger potted trees 4ft+ must be picked up at the nursery, potted trees carry a guarantee that we will replace up to 10% of the tree planting that doesn't survive the first year. If you are losing more than that, something else is wrong. Normal losses we plant with proper weed control is about 1%. All losses must be reported to us before Oct. 1st in the year they are planted. We do not cover losses beyond our control such as droughts, floods, lawn mowers, or animals. Call us if you have any questions.

2013 was another big year for windbreaks. It is still one of my favorite tree plantings. Blocking Cold Winter Winds and Stopping the Snow makes winter bearable and beautiful.

The planting of seedling evergreen trees (except for Red Cedar) in the field or yard is usually a waste of time and money. One bite from a deer or rabbit, or failure to provide weed and grass control the first 3 year, kills 98% of those planted.  It is critical that you provide grass and animal control to your seedlings, transplants, and potted-- we can help you do this

Call us if you have any questions concerning planting and growing of evergreens.
We know what it takes. KTF

NOTE:  The 51+ price of potted evergreen trees applies to trees picked up here, cash and carry. It does not apply to plants shipped, delivered or planted by us, they are priced in the under 50 price.  You can mix and match the different potted species/sizes to get the 51+ rate.
