When you need a hedge or a shade tree, you don't want to wait ten years for your trees to mature. Start by planting a larger tree- it will add value and enjoyment to your property immediately.
Grow a quick, beautiful privacy screen. Thuja Giant, Nellie Stevens Holly, and Leyland Cypress will grow 3 feet a year and establish a perfect living border.
Many varieties have a 5-7 ft. option... for those of us who are impatient!
Don’t wait another year for summer shade. A mature Weeping Willow will grow as much as ten feet in a single year. Tulip trees will put on 2-3 feet a year and quickly grow to 80 feet. The Cleveland Pear is great for a smaller yard, quickly attaining 20-30 feet and putting on a beautiful spring show.
For simple beauty, dogwoods and cherries are graceful and quick to achieve maturity. The Autumn Purple Ash turns a gorgeous, warm purple. Combine the classic American red maples- October Glory, Autumn Blaze, and Summer Red- to create a natural woodland that will stop traffic. Crape Myrtles are glorious summer bloomers, with graceful shapes and unusual bark for winter interest.
Many of these trees for sale will arrive five feet tall or larger, ready to do the job. Do you need a living fence? Summer shade? Some beauty? Large trees give you quick privacy, shade and color.
