Some gardens require large specimen trees to make an impact. When large trees are needed there is only one thing to do. Go tree shopping! A recent project called for large specimen California Live Oaks. Quercus agrifolia matures into one of California's most majestic trees. To ensure healthy, large trees were planted, we made a field trip to one of our favorite large tree nurseries. A full day was spent driving, reviewing and selecting from the available nursery stock. Each tree has a different character with various branching patterns, heights, widths, trunk sizes and leaf qualities. Once reviewed, the best trees were tagged. The chosen trees were photographed and studied for the appropriate garden location. Once this check was complete, the tree selection was reviewed one more time to make sure the most beautiful were chosen. The final step was getting the big trees to their new home and planted into the ground. Here are some of the large California Live Oaks we selected for our client.
