Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

Negative numbers reflect sales. If there are more positives than negatives, we're good. If it's close, call me to verify. Inventory is always somewhat fictional.

Utility Trees

”What is a utility tree?” you ask.

Skyfest poplar

400 skyfest poplar 1 gallon x 4 feet, just unloaded off the truck.


Poplar shelterbelt with chokecherry hedge.

Cheap doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty too. This is a row of native chokecherry against a row of poplar. You can also pick the berries for jam.


Golden willow

A block of golden willow in 2 gallon pots. These range from 3-4 feet tall -- big enough to compete with grass, and be seen from the back of a mower.

A utility tree is one that works for a living. A tree:

These are my shelterbelt trees. My privacy hedges. My naturalization trees and shrubs.

”You grow these by the thousand. Why are they in pre-orders?”

These are my bread and butter trees. They leave by the thousand too. I run out of these every year, or rather I run out of ones at the target size. I aim for 4 feet, but lots of them leave at 2.5 feet. They just aren’t here long enough.

This table is not limited to shelterbelt trees, but is everything that I have more than a hundred of. Stuff you buy by the pickup load, not by the each.

It includes my Fall Inventory (always semi-fictional...) and what I’ve ordered for spring.

Planting

If you're planning on planting a bunch, you really should read the page on Ideas > Shelterbelts It will give you information on spacing, and preparation, and some guidelines to getting optimum growth.
