Take Your Pick of Our Wide Variety of Trees for Sale at Windy Willows

If you’re on a mission to spruce your yard up and plant some beautiful trees, you may or may not already know that it takes a fair amount of research. Planting the wrong species of tree can create several problems in your garden, such as an invasive root system destroying your foundation, a tree that blocks out too much sun, or a plant that dies whenever the colder months come around.

At Windy Willows Wholesale Nursery, we have several species of trees for sale, so you can be sure that you will always find one to suit your specific needs. There are two main types of trees that you must first consider before your purchase, which we explore in further detail below.

Deciduous Trees

If “deciduous” seems like an unfamiliar word, some people also call them hardwoods. Deciduous trees are, in essence, any tree that begins to shed their leaves in autumn. While a tree that loses leaves might not sound too appealing, one of the main advantages has to do with temperature control. During summer, deciduous trees placed next to or near windows shield the home from the sun’s heat, while during the winter, bare branches let the sun through and warm the house up, ultimately saving on heating costs. Deciduous trees also look beautiful during the autumn months when their leaves turn from green to gold, burnt orange, and deep brown.

Examples of popular deciduous trees for sale at Windy Willows include:

  • Paperbark Thorns
  • Silver Birches
  • White Stinkwoods
  • Lemon Trees
  • Jacarandas
  • Japanese Maples

Coniferous Trees

Most coniferous trees are evergreen trees, which are trees that stay green with a full canopy of leaves around the year. Due to the nature of their function, coniferous trees generally have needle-shaped leaves. If your home is placed on a hill that gets a lot of frosty wind during winter, evergreens are great at shielding the house from the chill. Other benefits of conifers include their ability to offer refuge to birds and animals during colder months, as well as added privacy by blocking the view to the windows of your home.

Evergreens for sale at Windy Willows include some of the following:

  • Golden Rockets
  • Pom Pom Trees
  • Bay Leaf Trees
  • Cocos Palms
  • Viburnums
  • Sweet Thorns

Tips for Planting Trees

After deciding on the tree you would like to purchase, you may want to find out more about how tall the tree becomes once fully mature, as well as how much care and pruning is needed to maintain it. Pay attention to where the shade of the tree will fall, as well as what impact the root system will have on pathways and nearby buildings. While some might look for the cheapest trees on sale, it is important to remember how large a part of your garden a tree will form.
