It is one of our favorite trees, and is highly sought after, and quite hard-to-find. This specimen will reward every one who sees it throughout the year. They grow best in mixed sun and shade, especially being shaded from the hot afternoon sun. It is truly an exquisite and colorful tree.

Dawn Redwood or the Metasequoia is Fast Growing, deciduous, and drops its needles every autumn which is an unusual trait for a conifer. This tree is a relative of the California redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum), diverging around 150 million years ago. Dawn redwood will not do well in dry soil, but it needs full sun to grow its best when it is a larger tree. We start these as 'understory' trees and they love the high open canopy above them giving the good indirect light. It does best in moist to wet soils, so it can be a good choice for large rain garden locations. As with all trees a good organic planting location would be excellent for these trees.
The American Yellowwood is a sought after fragrant and showy American native tree with beautiful white racemes flowers. It is a beautiful native tree with long graceful trunks and flowers around May/ June in USDA Zone 6. The white flowering racemes are quite showy.
A gorgeous holly specimen that is a grand addition to any upscale landscape
A very handsome and hardy columnar oak that displays the gorgeous leaves of an Oak tree in a smaller vertical narrow form to fit into narrow places. It is a great tree that is hard-to-find and needs to be appreciated up close. The Kindred Spirit is cold hardy and relatively drought tolerant, and is just a fascinating tree for next to a walkway, driveway, or just close by to be appreciated up close by tree aficionados. They hold onto their leaves late into the fall offering privacy and beauty. The leaves in the spring and the summer are dark green with a beautiful silver underside which is displayed on a windy day. One gets to see what is usually at the top of large Oak trees right up close and personal. Highly recommended!
