Fruit Trees and Shrubs

Fruit trees and berry bushes are a beautiful and delicious addition to your home. Whether you're looking for a single dwarf tree for your balcony or an orchard for your backyard, we can help you with design, planting, and maintenance.

 

Selection

Picking the right trees and shrubs is not always as easy as picking fruit. Let us review your space and help you select the best plants to meet your needs, including:

Species

Through our network of nurseries, we can help locate many different species, including rare or exotic species.​ Some of our more popular tree species include apples, pears, cherries, peaches, nectarines, and figs. Popular bushes include thornless blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

Types of fruit

Some fruit varieties are perfect for eating fresh, while others are better for baking, preserving, or even home brewing. 

Mature size

We can find dwarf varieties that only grow to 8-10 feet tall, perfect for easy picking, small spaces, and even growing in containers!

Disease resistance

Through advanced breeding, there are often improvements in resistance to major diseases. 

Pollination

Some varieties need two different types of trees to bear fruit. Others do not need a partner​.

Years to bearing

You don't need to wait 10 years to enjoy your first harvest. Some varieties will allow you to enjoy fresh fruit within 2 years of planting. 

Planting

All trees are planted by an ISA Certified Arborist to national standards. We install a mulch ring and protective wire enclosure around each tree to protect it during its critical early years.

Harvesting Fruit

We have the right equipment to harvest ​fruit from most trees. If your trees produce more fruit than you want, we happily deliver the extra to local food assistance organizations as a free service.
