Maple (October Glory)

October Glory Red Maple or  "Acer rubrum" is known for its rapid growth and enduring fall color. In fact, its “October Glory” display of orange-red leaves lasts far longer than many other Maples. For several weeks you will be treated to one of the most vibrant displays of any tree in your neighborhood.

The October Glory Maple is one of the most popular Maples for many reasons.  Tiny spots of fiery red flower clusters appear on the bare branches in the spring while the rest of your yard is still muted in browns and greys. Glossy green leaves will appear next. As summer progresses, your Maple will grow 2 feet or more, achieving an oval-rounded form for optimal shade.

The October Glory can reach heights of 50' tall and 40' wide over 25 years.  It’s far more tolerant of some soil and weather conditions than other Maples, and forgiving of a neglectful nature. For a carefree, rapid-growth Maple of vibrant color you can’t do better than the October Glory Red Maple tree.

Autumn Blaze Red Maple trees or "Acer x freemanii Jeffsred' are prized as the fastest growing Maple tree with a hardy nature and brilliant color. Due to its upward growth, the Autumn Blaze Red Maple trees works well in clusters or as a stand-alone planting.

 It has rapidly become a highly sought after Maple variety in the US. The leaves emerge not as simply green, but already with a slight reddish tint.  Through the summer you can almost watch it grow-up to 3+ feet each year! 

In the fall the 5 inch orange-red leaves will still be dazzling your neighbors when other trees have long since faded. One of the best things about the Autumn Blaze Red Maple tree is that it’s disease and pest resistant, so no messy sprays or treatments. Natural shape needs no pruning. If you don't enjoy pruning, you can put the shears away.

The Sugar Maple Tree, part of the Maple Tree family, is said to be one of the finest autumn-coloring trees in North America. It develops orange, gold, scarlet, and apricot tinted leaves that defy the description. The Sugar Maple will grow in full sun or partial shade and prefers a well drained soil. While commercially planted for its delicious syrup and value as lumber, this tree makes a great addition to any yard or park. And one of its most prominent features is amazing fall color. As the seasons change, the leaves turn vibrant shades of yellow, burnt orange and red.

Beauty, charm and strength the Sugar Maple is a hardwood that embodies it all. Rising to heights of nearly 100 feet, the Sugar Maple expands its grace, spreading out its incomparable leaves to widths of 50 feet across over time. With a gorgeous array of brilliant colors, Sugar Maples make an exceptional roadside tree. 

The Summer Red or "Red Maple" is one of the best named of all trees, featuring something red in each of the seasons in winter, flowers in spring, leafstalks in summer, and brilliant foliage in autumn. This pageant of color, along with the red maple's relatively fast growth and tolerance to a wide range of soils, makes it a widely planted favorite.

The Summer Red Maple Tree grows strong and healthy up to 40’ tall and 25’ wide relatively quickly. The leaves grow thick and dense in the heat of summer to provide you the shade you need, when you need it. All year the new leaves emerge red, fading to a light green, then a dark green. This makes the trees look almost like they are flowering from a distance. It’s a beautiful effect. Then in the fall, the older leaves turn red, while the younger leaves turn yellow and orange providing a drool worthy classic autumn-color leaf display.  It’s easy to plant, and even easier to care for. Once these trees are established they will provide shade to generations of your family.

Apples

The Willow is a very large tree that gets its name from the willow-like leaves it sprouts. The bark is grayish-brown, with wrinkles as it gets older. The leaves are light green during the summer months and yellow, orange, and russet during the autumn months.

Because of its large size, it is most suited for parking lot islands, lining city streets and as a park or shade tree.   This oak can grow between 3 and 4 feet in one year under ideal conditions. These trees can mature to be very tall, and some can reach to one hundred feet tall and around forty feet wide over time. These trees are wonderful for shade trees on a lawn, but they need plenty of room to grow so their roots can spread, so they become healthy.  These look amazing as they are covered in their leaves and especially as they begin to change colors.  This is a wonderful way to provide color to all lawns during the fall and autumn months of the year.

The apple is a deciduous tree, generally standing (6 to 15 ft) tall in cultivation and up to 39 ft in the wild. When cultivated, the size, shape and branch density are determined by rootstock selection and trimming method. The leaves are alternately arranged dark green-colored simple ovals with serrated margins and slightly downy undersides. Blossoms are produced in spring simultaneously with the budding of the leaves, and are produced on spurs and some long shoots. flowers are white with a pink tinge that gradually fades. The central flower of the inflorescence is called the "king bloom"; it opens first, and can develop a larger fruit. The fruit matures in late summer or autumn, and varieties exist with a wide range of sizes. Some consumers, especially those in Japan, prefer a larger apple, while apples below 2.25 in are generally used for making juice and have little fresh market value.

The Southern Red Oak also known as the turkey-foot oak due to the shape of the leaf, the Southern Red oak is an excellent source of food for most all woodland critters. The petite but tasty acorn is just the right size for turkey, pheasant, and other small forest creatures. Fox squirrels are especially fond of this easy to munch early to mid fall dropping acorn. It grows in even the worst conditions. From wide open pastures, dense forests and polluted city sidewalks, the Southern Red Oak can thrive in nearly every condition imaginable. If you have poor soil, compact space, wet sand, dry clay or urban air, you can grow this tree as well as someone with perfect soil and a wide-open pasture.

Your family will love the shade. Imagine tying a swing to this tree's sturdy branches or setting up a picnic under the canopy. Your family will want to spend as much time as possible under the massive shade of this huge tree. With a width of 40-50 ft, you'll have plenty of room to relax and play. Southern Red oaks prefer to live on dry upland sites and are intermediately shade tolerant. This is an excellent specimen to add to your tree collection.

Shumard Oak or "Quercus shumardii" is one of the fastest growing Red Oaks. It’s a deciduous shade tree loved by wildlife and would look great in a front or side yard to shield your home from the summer sun.   Shumard Oak Trees can reach 90 feet at maturity with a 60 foot spread over time, providing you with an outstanding shade tree in a fraction of the time that most Red Oaks would require.   

Planting a Shumard Oak Tree provides you with an impressive shade tree, but the Shumard Oak has even more to offer you. 

As your tree ages, 1-inch acorns will be an added benefit of your tree. You can sit back and watch the show as these acorns, particularly loved by wildlife, provide a meal for your nature neighbors. As autumn approaches, your Shumard Oak Tree will put on a brilliant show of reds and oranges to finish out the season.   

The peach (Prunus persica) is a deciduous tree native to the region of Northwest China between the Tarim Basin and the north slopes of the Kunlun Shan mountains, where it was first domesticated and cultivated. It bears an edible juicy fruit called a peach or a nectarine. The specific epithet persica refers to its widespread cultivation in Persia, whence it was transplanted to Europe. It belongs to the genus Prunus which includes the cherry, apricot, almond and plum, in the rose family. The peach is classified with the almond in the subgenus Amygdalus, distinguished from the other subgenera by the corrugated seed shell.

 

Peach and nectarines are the same species, even though they are regarded commercially as different fruits. In contrast to peaches, whose fruits present the characteristic fuzz on the skin, nectarines are characterized by the absence of fruit-skin trichomes (fuzz-less fruit); genetic studies suggest nectarines are produced due to a recessive allele, whereas peaches are produced from a dominant allele for fuzzy skin.
