Trees beautify the landscape, provide shade and shelter from the elements,
give us fruit to eat and flowers to enjoy, and release oxygen into the air
Many trees grow naturally, but others are grown at nurseries.
Tree nurseries are places where trees are propagated and cultivated
in preparation for use in orchards, landscapes, and forests.
Retail tree nurseries sell trees to the general public, while wholesale
tree nurseries sell to landscape contractors and other nurseries.
A tree nursery may specialize in fruit trees, shade trees, or evergreen
trees or even in certain tree species. Some nurseries feature
seedlings or bare root trees that can be easily shipped in quantity.
The trees grown by a particular nursery depend upon its location and
climate, because different trees thrive in different environments.
Tree nursery staff is usually knowledgeable about their products, and
will most likely be able to help you select appropriate trees for your
requirements. Some tree nurseries offer tree planting services, and
they may even offer landscape design services for their larger customers.
When purchasing woody plants from a tree nursery, inspect their root
systems or rootballs. Bare-root plants should be damp when
purchased, and their roots should be kept wet until planted.
Container plants and ball-and-burlap (B&B) plants should look healthy
and well-watered; when planting these plants, keep their rootballs
