Trees form the outline of our landscapes, giving us definition and shade. Finding the perfect tree(s) for your landscape can be a daunting decision. Determining if you prefer bloom or fall color, weeping or upright, large shade trees or smaller understory trees can have you scratching your head. 

Following is a small slideshow of ornamental trees. Click on each picture and it will pop up to give you a description of the tree. It’s a mixture of spring blooming, summer blooming, fall color, bird and butterfly attracting trees. There is something for every home.
