Benefits of Planting Nursery Trees


The benefits of planting nursery trees are endless. They are multi-functional and can enhance any home. They can cover vast foundations, decorate a yard or driveway, help control stormwater runoff and so much more. Three of the most popular varieties of nursery trees include dogwood, oak and maple trees.

Dogwood trees are great spring bloomers that boast an extraordinary array of landscaping benefits. The American native flowering dogwood trees (Cornus florida) are great for planting along property lines or serving as a border between sections of a yard. They can also be used to transform a dull driveway into a floral getaway. The unique branching pattern of this tree allows them to be aesthetically pleasing any time of the year, even once the leaves are gone. This type of flowering tree can also be great foundation plantings for houses with large foundations. The Japanese dogwood (Cornus kousa) blooms later in the spring than its American counterpart. This tree often features a red or purple color leaves which are perfect for fall and last into the winter months. Dogwood trees are multi-functional and would make a great addition to any home.

Oak trees are an excellent investment for any property. They are best known for their longevity and durability. This type of three can often live for more than 500 years. White oaks or red oaks are the two primary types of oak trees. They can easily be identified by glancing at the edge of a leaf. The leaves of white oaks are rounded, and the leaves of red oaks are pointed. Oak trees can be especially helpful in the fall and winter months. They can be used around your home by providing shade and in turn, reduce cooling costs. Oaks can also reduce air pollution and can help manage stormwater runoff.

Maple trees are unique in their colorfulness, their ability to endure cold weather and their variety. This favorite type of three is best known for its ornamental features, and there are many types to choose from. The beautiful red and orange leaves of the Red Maple tree make it a great decorative tree in the fall months. Another large colorful seasonal tree is the Japanese Maple. The Japanese Maple comes in several different varieties including the pink, floral “Laceleaf,” large shaded “Redleaf,” the burgundy-leaved “Bloodgood” and several more.
