Large shade trees provide a cool retreat on hot summer days. They create a source of shelter, nesting sites and nourishment for birds and other wildlife and many turn fabulous shades of gold, orange, red and purple in the fall to brighten the autumn landscape. Trees not only increase the appeal of a property but literally increase the resale value as well. Some shade trees take many years to reach maturity and achieve their full beauty, but they are a worthy investment; creating a more beautiful environment for generations to come.
Mature deciduous trees provide cooling shade, and are effective in reducing energy used in homes. They provide instant structure to the landscape and make wonderful specimen plants because of the vast array of foliage forms, varied bark, and overall growth habits available. Best used for large scale plantings.
