"The world will not perish for want of wonders but for want of wonder"
J.B.S.Haldane

Typical Pine

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.

Shelterbelt

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.

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.
