White Birch Tree

The White Birch Tree retains its classic appearance with its elegant branches and drooping bark that can shed its layers in times of need, making it an ideal addition to any home’s landscape.

I could go on and on about the truth that it’s best suited for the harsh climates of Northern California, as well as the colder areas across the Golden State, so it’s perfect for you.

The White Birch stands out with its timeless silhouette, its robust, mature bark, as well as the blooming of its flowers throughout April and May, shining from your backyard. There are many benefits to this lush tree from season to season, making it an even more attractive tree.

In spite of the fact that its leaves are deciduous, its white bark in winter creates a striking appearance almost throughout the year.

Tulip Poplar ‘Little Volunteer’

The Tulip Poplar is Tennessee’s beautiful state tree, which is why it is commonly called ‘Little Volunteer’ due to its proportions. A native of the eastern United States, this all-American gem has a growth rate of just one-third that of its relative: 35 feet tall and 20 feet wide.

Due to its small size, miniature Tulip Poplars are well suited for landscaping in front yards, backyards and gardens. As a result, your home will look much more welcoming to visitors.

You will enjoy all the benefits of a large tree in a smaller size, no matter where you choose to plant the Little Volunteer.

Patmore Green Ash Tree

As the Patmore Green Ash grows, watch as the graceful shade begins to form. Since it is disease-resistant and drought-resistant, the Patmore requires virtually no upkeep.

The tree grows rapidly, so you won’t have to worry about fertilizer or watering when it comes time to enjoy it. The tree is one of the hardest trees you can find. Traditionally, Ash trees have been cultivated to resist diseases and pests that commonly affect other species. It thrives on both wet and dry soil, so you don’t have to worry about soil type.

It is often planted along the sidewalks and streets of American cities, where it is considered to be an emblem of the American landscape. As well as the beautifully rounded crown and its distinctive kelly-green leaves in summer, its brilliant yellow foliage in fall provides a contrast that is desirable and appealing on a month-to-month basis.

Red Dragon Japanese Maple Tree

Known for its brilliant shades of crimson and scarlet foliage throughout the seasons, the Red Dragon Japanese Maple Tree is one of the most beautiful trees on the market today. As spring approaches, the sky fills with ruby red foliage that is vivid and striking.

As summer approaches, Red Dragon’s foliage turns a rich warm burgundy, adding a touch of elegance to any outdoor living space. A striking punch of color is added to Red Dragon’s appearance as autumn rolls in.

Additionally, it can be used in many different ways. As a tree that matures to just 8 to 12 feet tall and a similar spread, the Red Dragon Japanese Maple is considered somewhat modest in stature, making it a good choice for gardens with limited space.

If grouped in threes, this tree can be a true show stopper as a single specimen as well as a magnificent accent in any location. A decorative container can also be used for the Red Dragon.


October Glory Red Maple Tree


This improved Red Maple Tree cultivar features dazzling red color that makes it a superior cultivar over all others. The red color it has is some of the brightest available despite the fact that it requires minimal care.

How about even better? During autumn, its leaves drop later, so you have more time to enjoy the display. October Glory’s vivid display of red foliage stands out among other trees stripped bare. This plant produces bold red flowers that stand out against vibrant green foliage in the spring.

With the October, your lawn will still look the best on the block – even if you don’t spend hours in the garden.

Lemon Eucalyptus Tree

You’ll immediately notice a fresh and clean scent filling your home or landscape, naturally filling it with the scent of Lemon Eucalyptus. As long as there is a lemon scent around your home, you and your family will be constantly complimented for how good it smells.

This Eucalyptus tree is attractive and invites guests into your home, but they will keep pests away as well. This plant is naturally repellant to mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and other insects due to its citronella oil content. To keep bugs at bay, place some crushed leaves in your living space or garden.

Crush a few leaves in your hands before going outside at night, so that they will give off the beneficial oils, and you can relax rather than worry about bug bites. You should plant this tree in your backyard if you often have barbecues and family reunions as it repels bugs.

It is an extremely versatile evergreen tree, Lemon Eucalyptus, being one of its most popular forms. In case you want to plant it outdoors, it has the advantage of quickly reaching heights of up to 50-60 feet high in a short time.
