Something about a tree-lined street, park, or backyard brings peace and beauty. Walking among a grove of Maple in the fall, sitting on a swing hung from a stately Oak Tree, seeking relief from the scorching sun under the leaves of a beautiful shade tree are some of the reasons for planting various trees.

Planting native trees have many positive aspects

Native Trees have, over time, adjusted to the climate and soil conditions. They require less care than other trees not native to the area. They are conducive to the wildlife, birds, and butterflies familiar to the city. Also, Native trees are resistant to diseases and insects prevalent in the area by adding beauty and food to the landscape without a lot of extra work or attention.


Shade trees are planted for a variety of practical and aesthetic reasons. Shade trees have been and continue to be used as an efficient way to help cold and protect homes. A six-foot shade tree can be expected to bring shade to windows during the first year of growth and begins to produce shade to the roof within about five years.


Homeowners often plant the mighty Oak Tree, and city planners, because their roots grow very deep and won't disturb Sidewalks or landscaping. Oaks can live for centuries. Oak trees provide shade beauty and require very little upkeep.

The brilliant colors and the cool shade they provide are just a couple of reasons they are so popular. Maple trees are fast-growing and very cold resistant. They planted fall or early spring. Maple trees have varieties that fit nicely into small landscaping and much larger trees that need room to grow.

Planting a Native Flowering tree is ideal for adding color without worrying if the new tree will adapt. The best planting time and that's in the fall before the first frost or early spring.
