Landscaping

Trees

We offer a wide selection of deciduous trees and shrubs, as well as evergreen trees to add beauty and shade to your gardens and landscape design. In addition to bolstering curb appeal, trees offer a host of environmental and economic benefits. They can help provide privacy, moderate the climate, improve air quality, reduce pollution, and slash home energy costs.

When choosing a tree or group of trees for your landscape design, carefully consider the full-grown size of the tree, the type of care it requires, and whether you prefer a tree that will drop its leaves (deciduous) or retain its foliage year-round (evergreen).

Deciduous trees are often chosen for their brilliant foliage, fruit, or shade production capabilities. View our selection of deciduous trees below, or learn more about evergreen trees .The expert staff at Jolly Lane Greenhouse can help you find the perfect tree for your yard, or answer any questions about planting and caring for your new tree.

Featured tree:

Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa)

This deciduous shade tree grows slowly, but will eventually reach upwards of 50’. This impressive oak grows well in the open, with semi-glossy dark green leaves that turn yellow in the fall. The Bur Oak grows well in a variety of soils, and is both drought and fire resistant. Commonly chosen for landscaping yards and parks, the Bur Oak regularly lives 200-300 years, making it an impressive long-living addition to your home.
