Types of Trees
There’s something magical about a Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum). It’s sculptural and dramatic without being too “showy”. Lacy leaves, a graceful form and the ability to command attention are all reasons why the Japanese Maple is worthy of a place of honor in your yard.
Deciduous trees are amazing. In the summer, they provide valuable shade for your patios, decks, and home. In the winter, trees can block cold winds creating a thermal barrier. Regardless of the season, they can save you money on your energy bills while enabling you to enjoy the outdoors.
Trees provide long-lasting beauty and increase your property values, but that’s not all they have to contribute. Properly chosen and sited trees can reduce your heating costs in winter and your cooling costs in summer by maintaining a good thermal balance for your home.
If you would like to upgrade the aesthetics of your landscape and increase the value of your property this spring, consider planting native New Jersey trees. The astounding variety of tree species, with their own unique size, foliage, and colors can become an amazing focal point and a source of privacy from unwanted sounds or views.
When choosing an arborvitae or thuja variety, it is important to know the purpose or reasoning for the addition to your landscape. Will it be used as a privacy fence? Are you looking to add some color and shape to your design? Do you enjoy trimming your plants every season or are you looking for low maintenance?
