Utility Trees

Shelterbelt

”What is a utility tree?” you ask.

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?”

Skyfest poplar


IV class = pic6>

Poplar shelterbelt with chokecherry hedge.

Cheap doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty too.

This table is not limited to shelterbelt trees, but is everything that I have more than a hundred of. It includes my Fall Inventory (always semi-fictional...) and what I’ve ordered for spring.
