Get a New Yard with New Trees for the New Year

We love planting trees all year long, no matter what time of the year it might be! It doesn’t hurt that we live in an amazing part of the country that lets us plant and care for our landscapes, even in the winter months! Along with the great weather, we also grow our own trees and palm trees, so we get to pamper them from the moment we plant the seedling on our farm to the day we plant the tree in your yard. Our trees and palms are always at optimal health and ready to be planted even during the colder months (“colder” for Arizona). Below is a list of what we consider the best cold-hardy trees to plant during the winter season. Check it out….

Pineapple PalmPINEAPPLE

Also known as the Canary Island Date Palm, it is characterized by its dense canopy of dark green fronds, a stout trunk, and a pineapple-like crown – where the name Pineapple Palm came from. The distinct diamond pattern on the trunk lends to its regal look. This low maintenance and slow growing palm loves full sun exposure and warm climates, just like what we have in Arizona! When planted in groups, this palm provides a nice shady spot. No matter the size you get, this palm is sure to bring a grand presence to any landscape. Pineapple Palms will add long-lasting character to any landscape.

 

Mediterranean Fan PalmMED FAN-1

The Mediterranean Fan Palm features blue-gray, fan-shaped fronds with unique multi-trunks– making it one of the best landscape palms for landscape lighting! This palm is considered the hardiest of all palms. It is a low maintenance palm that requires very little cleanup through the year. We like to use Mediterranean Fan Palms underneath larger palms to add more texture and foliage, around swimming pools, or as a tropical barrier hedge on landscape borders. These palms also do amazingly well in containers, which would add flare into a small yard or patio garden. A Mediterranean Fan Palm is a must-have for anyone with a tropical or Mediterranean style yard!

 

Southern Live Oak TreeLIVE OAK az

This is the Mighty Oak of the South, which is obviously why it’s named Southern Live Oak tree and it fits right at home in any Arizona yard. This is a clean evergreen shade tree with dense dark green foliage that can make plenty of shade in your yard. This is one of those trees that can create lifelong memories. It features strong limbs for attaching a tire swing or climbing for hours of fun. This hardy evergreen can handle windy conditions and drought, too. We recommend buying our Specimen sized Live Oaks to get to enjoy them as soon as they are planted in your landscape!

 

 

Brazilian Pepper TreeBRAZLIAN PEPPER-3

This vibrant evergreen is sure to give any landscape year-round beauty. Available in both single or multi-trunk, Brazilian Pepper trees are water-wise and require little water once established. The glossy, dark green leaves create a wide spreading canopy that produces an abundance of shade. A perfect choice for Southwest environments due to its love of heat and its drought tolerance. During winter, bright red berries appear that are commonly used as holiday decorations. As a bonus, the Brazilian Pepper tree can attract butterflies, so sit back in the shade and appreciate the wondrous site.

 

Majestic Ash TreeMAJESTIC

The Majestic Ash tree is an evergreen shade tree and Arizona needs that around! Because these trees are low-maintenance and nearly pest-free, it makes them ideal for planting in a yard or street plantings. 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. The classic, larger-leaved green foliage compliments the canopy as well with its dense and unique growth. This Majestic Ash tree originates from Mexico, so it will have no problem in any Arizona setting!
