Evergreens Trees

Evergreen Tree Nursery

Evergreens offers a visual screen to hide unattractive views year round. Evergreens are as their name implies - they keep their foliage all year. Evergreens come in many shapes and sizes:

  • Tall: like a blue spruce or white pine
  • Medium height: like an arborvitae
  • Bush size: like a blue holly
  • Low: like a junipers

Steve's Pro Tip: Evergreens

Most Evergreens do well in an acidic soil. An easy way to accomplish this is to apply Holly Tone any time it is cool and wet such as early Spring or late Fall.
