The Value of Trees

While the preferred trees and types of soils are different, Tom Spencer of Soul of the Garden says it so much better than I ever could.   Click here for his thoughts on slow-growing, long lived, hardwood trees.  

And remember, Fall is the perfect time to plant trees in Deep South Texas.  Which tree are you adding to your landscape this year?

I'm swimming in trees in the new garden, Mary Beth, so I have no plans to add another one this fall. What are you planting?

Pam - I am looking for a Monterrey Oak - it's in all the commercial landscape specs down here and I couldn't identify it if my life depended on it. Second choice is a Burr Oak. Love its HUGE acorns.

Those are both really nice. I've planted a bur oak in both of my last two gardens.
