Our VIP Tree of Fall – The Majestic Ash

Posted by Jessica Downs on 11/2/18 8:00 AM

The Perfect Tree for the Perfect Yard

This Majestic Ash tree is an evergreen seedless variety that stays greener than other ash varieties. They feature large, glossy green leaves and its narrow, upright shape makes it an ideal shade tree for any potential planting locations. Because these trees are low-maintenance and virtually pest-free, it makes them ideal for a yard or street plantings.

  

This is the ultimate shade tree and Southern California can never get enough shade any time of the year! If you're expecting and hoping for a large canopy of shade to provide a play area for your children or for a way to escape the afternoon sun you will not be disappointed in the Majestic Ash

You can plant the Majestic Ash as a focal point in your yard or in a row for a wall of shade. A row of these trees will also give your yard additional privacy as well. The classic, larger-leaved green foliage compliments the canopy as well with its dense and unique growth. Minimal light will pass through this tree, which allows many of our homeowners to plant colorful partial-sun shrubs underneath the tree that will be protected from the sun. 

Our Tree Care team is always ready to help you out with any questions or concerns regarding tree removal, trimming, fertilizing, and more!

The Moon Valley Experience

John and Susan recently bought a new home but quickly realized how hard it was to keep the air cool in their home and how unbearable it was to spend time outside in their yard. With windows on all sides of their house, it was impossible to escape the intense sun every day. They tried to fix the issue with easy and quick ideas hoping that it would help cool the home down but to no avail.
