Tree Excitement!

Here along the Front Range in Colorado we are seeing major construction underway. Thank goodness!!! Whole communities are starting to be built. And, within those communities there will soon be a need for a whole lot of trees. We have them at Loma Vista Nursery and they are FABULOUS!

What is the added value you get when buying our trees from the Midwest? They are grown in the same type of climate, have similar soil types and lower freight costs. 

Here are a couple of newer varieties that are being recognized for their wide range of soil type tolerance. They are great for the Front Range and Midwest landscapes. 


Quercus madcanielli Clemons (Heritage Oak)
 



Heritage Oak (Quercus x macdanielli 'Clemons') is a cross of Q. macrocarpa and Q. robur and has a fairly fast growth habit that is not usually associated with the Oak family.  It is very adaptable to a wide range of soil types including dry and wet soils.  With proper care and conditions, this tree could live to be over 300 years old!  Hardy to zone 4, matures 50-60' x 35-45'. 


 


 

Pacific Sunset Maple
Pacific Sunset Maple (Acer truncatum x A platanoides 'Warrenred' PP 7433) is a beautiful tree that starts turning color earlier in the fall and has very good form. This tree tends to have better alkaline tolerance than other maples and gives a spectacular fall show with hints of red, orange and yellow fall foliage. Hardy to zone 4, 30-40' x 20-30'. 

Susan and Alfredo recently toured our fields and took photos of many of the trees available for fall and spring harvest. For a complete look at the images of our tree fields, please go to our Dropbox Tree Fields folder.

 
Happy fall!

  2. This is an excellent food security solution as moringa is in full leaf by the end of dry seasons.The plant is easily propagated and recommended for homesteads for its food value. Tennessee Wholesale Nursery
