Trees and Plants Make Perfect Gifts!

Posted by Felipe Benavides on 11/21/2017

Give the gift that keeps on giving – trees and plants! That’s right, why not give a gift that grows with you and one that can also bring beauty, privacy, and shade to our landscape. Of course, a beautiful new landscape is also a gift that can increase property value too. When you plant trees, shrubs, palms, succulents, and other plants, you are not only adorning your landscape; you’re also helping the environment by adding living things that can release oxygen and can help to clean the air. It’s a gift for our planet too. You win, and our environment wins!

Did you know that two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of four? And when you hear news like that, you just have to plant more trees! When it comes to creating a beautiful landscape that benefits every one of us, you cannot beat the premium-quality selection of trees and other plants for sale at Moon Valley Nurseries. We have mature trees available right now so that they can release oxygen, provide shade, and block unwanted views in style. Of course, the experience of growing trees and plants is one that creates lifelong memories too. Big or small, gifts that grow make the perfect presents!

P.S. It’s perfectly fine to give the gift of a tree to yourself, and we sell gift cards so that your gift recipient can pick what they want! BUY YOUR GIFT CARD TODAY  Click Here!

Our Top Pick Trees That Make Perfect Gifts!

Brazilian Pepper (Schinus terebinthifolius):brazilian_pepper

Festive trees such as the Brazilian Pepper are made for gift wrap bows! These beautiful evergreen trees feature glossy dark green leaves, and in the winter, they bloom red berries that look as if they’re made just for the holidays. Mature trees can grow a wide-spreading canopy that is dense and able to provide plenty of shade! We like to use them as a focal point in any landscape, and these are also excellent trees for adding privacy. Place a park bench nearby and bask in a peaceful spot so that you can enjoy all the birds and butterflies that are attracted to this tree!

 

Live Oak (Quercus virginiana):live_oak

These evergreens are trees that the entire family will love. Mature specimens offer a picturesque spot for a picnic, and the strong limbs are just begging to be climbed on and explored! Bird feeders and owl boxes are the perfect stocking stuffers, and if there’s a bird watcher in your family, they will love to watch the birds cavorting. Homeowners and landscapers alike appreciate their low-maintenance needs, and they provide plenty of shade to cool off during the blazing hot summer. These are drought tolerant trees with little to no special care required once established. They are also considered by many to be the best oak for lawn planting.

Ficus nitida or rubiginosa (Arizona and California only):

Ficus nitida and rubiginosa are both reliable trees capable of providing shade and blocking unwanted views! In fact, our Indian Laurel Column specimens are often used to create a thick, evergreen privacy hedge that is almost impossible to see through, which is why they have also been planted near busy streets so that they can filter loud noises. Both types look fantastic in any landscape, and the dense growth habit of the rubiginosa and their compact size makes them an ideal shade tree for smaller yards. Plant any of these Ficus trees and create a stylish backyard retreat.

We do not sell or recommend the Ficus tree for the Las Vegas area. However, keep reading for a viable alternative.

Perfect Tree for Vegas!australian_bottle

Australian Bottle (Brachychiton populneus):

These tall and narrow evergreens are ideal for Nevada, Arizona, and California. We like to plant mature trees in yards for adding a massive amount of shade and privacy. When planted in a row they can also be used as an effective wind barrier. Their bright green leaves are attractive all year long, and people love them because they can thrive with little maintenance required. These trees have an upright, narrow form so that they are perfect for closed-in areas!

 

#FREEPLANTING on all Box Sized Trees

The gift just keeps getting better with free professional planting on all box sized trees! That’s right! Free professional planting makes it easier than ever to have a beautiful new landscape. Of course, we offer free planting on all box sized trees all year long, so when you’re ready to give yourself the gift of trees, you can let our crew do all the work!
