Spring shipping is winding down, but there’s still time for you to order from our Tree Nursery.
The sugar maple is one of America’s best-loved trees. In fact, more states have claimed it as their state tree than any other single species—those states being New York, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Vermont.
While commercially planted for its delicious syrup and value as lumber, this tree makes a great addition to any yard or park. And one of its most prominent features is amazing fall color. As the seasons change, the leaves turn vibrant shades of yellow, burnt orange and red.
Add a sugar maple tree to your yard this spring.

Planting Trees for Energy Savings
Did you know that the average homeowner can save up to 20 percent on energy bills by planting the right trees in the right place? For example, large deciduous trees on the southeast, southwest, and west of a home provide cooling shade in the summer. They also allow the low winter sun to help warm the house during the colder months. And evergreens planted on the north side of a home block cold winter winds.
By properly planting your trees for energy savings, you will not only lower your energy bill but also do your part to slow climate change.
A Useful Past
The paper birch received its name from the nature of its bark. Long ago, people would peel layers of the thin, paper-like bark and write on it as a way to send messages. It is also called the canoe birch — a nod to its favor among Native Americans and early fur trappers as a resource for sleek, sturdy, and lightweight watercraft.
