Norway Spruce is just the thing if you are looking for a large, hardy tree for your property. These beautiful evergreens have many appealing traits: they are strong enough to stand up to high winds, snow and ice; they thrive in a variety of different soils; they are the fastest growing spruce at a rate of two to three feet per year. Their strength and size make them perfect for windbreaks. Attractive, majestic, and easy to care for, Norway spruce is the perfect choice for those looking for a fast-growing tree to beautify their landscape all year long.
Serbian spruce is an exceptional conifer worthy of planting anywhere. It is very hardy, especially in the Midwest where limestone-based soils are abundant. This tree is certainly a welcome choice where space is limited. The up swept branch habit at the tips allows the silvery white undersides of the needles to be seen, creating a two-toned color effect in the landscape. The tree has a moderate growth rate of up to 1 foot per year. Serbian spruce trees grow well in the full sun to partial shade. These trees are commonly considered one of the best spruces for ornamental use.
Black spruce is a beautiful ornamental evergreen. The black spruce is a small, narrow evergreen tree with a spire-like crown. It has descending branches, with dark, bluish-green needles, and upturned ends. Lower limbs sweep the ground. Slow growing at 1 foot per year, twigs, leaves and seeds are important wildlife food. Very valuable as nesting sites for birds. The shallow, spreading root system benefits from a 3-4” layer of organic mulch. Black spruce need very little in the way of pruning. All evergreens experience seasonal needle fall in autumn. No serious disease or insect problems with the Black spruce tree.
The Techny is a clone of its parent plant the White Cedar or American Arborvitae. This special cultivar was found growing in Mission Gardens in Techny Illinois and due to its strong characteristics has been cloned ever since. It is a medium growing (12-18 inches) evergreen that has a dark green soft foliage. It grows to the height of 12-18 feet and can be pruned as desired. A 12 ft Techny is about 6 ft wide. Foliage density starts out more open than an Emerald Green but thickens tremendously with age, providing good screening. Techny Arborvitae has shown to be a better plant for use in windbreaks than any other Arborvitae and is more drought resistant. When you purchase the Techny from us we will install a drip hose at base of the tree, this can be connected to a garden hose which will save you time and water. After planting, we will tell you how often to water, usually once every 2 weeks.

This exception plant can also be used as a specimen in pots or dotted around your house and garden beds, making a perfect partner for your flowering plants
Mulch is very important and required for our tree guarantee. Mulch conserves moisture and promotes water and air penetration. The back filled soil surrounding your new trees needs to be covered with mulch for proper tree care.
