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.
