Spring has arrived! With longer days and warmer temperatures, trees are beginning to bud and flowers are popping with color. Now is the perfect time to add to nature’s beauty and plant a tree in your yard.
Planting in the spring allows trees and shrubs to develop their root systems before being tested by the hotter dryer summers. The spring planting season is underway and Big Trees inventory is fully stocked and ready!
We always ensure we’re fully prepared for spring and this year is no exception. We have a wide array of varieties and color choices for trees suitable for transplanting. Here’s a breakdown of some excellent options for trees you can add to your yard.
Early flowering trees are the ornamental cherries, plums, pears, magnolias and crabapples. These trees are a fun reminder that winter is over, and spring and summer days are just ahead. Right away when you plant them, they will begin to brighten up your yard and the neighborhood around.
Later flowering trees, like the stewartia, styrax, and dogwoods, are a nice touch in any yard. Since they flower later, the weather is usually a little better and the flowers tend to last longer. Having a yard designed in a way that has multi season interest can be easily achieved.
Layering in trees that bloom early, late, and some that have fall color can give you lots of things to look forward to in your yard year-round. Maples, Ash and Oaks are just a few of the trees that burst with color in the fall and make great additions to the landscape.
If privacy is what you need, Big Trees offers a variety of different kinds of evergreen trees to fit in various sized planting areas. Big Trees can help you choose a screening tree that gives you immediate privacy now but won’t outgrow your planting space.
You can consult with your tree care specialist to determine the optimal trees and the optimal locations for planting in your yard. We’ll help you find the trees that are right for what you want to do with your landscape. With the right trees and appropriate tree care, your yard will look beautiful for years to come.
Spring is one of our favorite seasons. It’s bursting with beauty and new growth. Take advantage of the season and take the time to plant a tree in your yard!
