Native Tree and Shrubs are Ecological Powerhouses
Trees and shrubs provide many different species of butterflies, moths, birds, and bees with many different resources. They are also a great way to help out the environment if you are not a gardener or do not want a garden. We are offering canopy trees (taller species), understory trees, and shrubs in order to make it easy for anyone to create a layered landscape that offers interest and wildlife support throughout the year. Many of the plants produce spring flowers; then berries or nuts and other types of seeds develop in the fall and winter.
Not only do these plants provide habitat and food for wildlife, they sequester carbon, clean the air and water, and provide numerous other benefits. You can forest bathe right in your own backyard!
We expanded our offerings this year: Blue Beech, Dwarf Honeysuckle, Red-stem Dogwood, Bladdernut, Pagoda Dogwood, Juneberry, and more.
