no image

Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. It produces large nuts.

Douglas Maple is a fast growing and long lived short tree. The leaves of the Douglas Maple are densely packed and end very close to the ground, making it an excellent tree for ensuring privacy.

In the fall, the leaves make a brilliant change to red or orange, depending on the tree.
