Available Trees for the 2017 Fall/Winter Season

Canopy Trees
Canopy trees can be planted if the right-of-way is at least 6′ wide, these trees will grow taller.


Cypress is a moderately fast growing tree. Its pale green leaves turn a brilliant coppery color before dropping in the fall. Though Cypress are often seen growing around lakes, this tree also thrives in dry urban locations away from sidewalks, homes and driveways.



Nuttall Oak
Fast-growing oak that establishes quickly and has great branch development in its early years. The Nuttal Oak has lobed leaves and produces acorns that wildlife thrive on in December and January.



Live Oak
Live Oaks are moderate-growing, sprawling evergreen canopy trees. They are drought-resistant and highly tolerant of urban conditions.



Sweetbay Magnolia
Sweetbay Magnolias are medium sized evergreen trees that seem to glimmer in the wind due to the whitish-green underside of their leaves. Their cream-colored, lemon-scented flowers, bloom from June through September.


Understory Trees
Understory trees are best if you have overhead power lines or a narrow parkway, as they grow shorter than canopy trees.

Dahoon Holly
Evergreen tree with shiny, dark-green leaves that grows well in urban environments. Its narrow size and shape lends itself to usage as a hedge or screen for your property.



Tea Olive
The Tea Olive, or Sweet Olive, is a small evergreen tree most often seen planted as an ornamental landscape tree. The medium-green leaves have a pale underside and are joined from October through March by many small but extremely fragrant white blossoms.



This moderately growing fruit tree is very productive and reveals it’s bright yellow-orange fruit when leaves drop in the fall months. Plant away from sidewalks and driveways, as fallen fruit can cause a mess on pavement.
