Winter Friendly Trees for Your Yard
When planting trees, it is always a good idea to consider how they will withstand winter temperatures since New Jersey can get pretty cold (remember the Polar Vortex?) Here is our professional advice for picking trees this winter.
The thunderhead pine is perfect for winter conditions. Among the irregular patterns that the leaves grow in, there will be large white bud leafs. The packed needles grow year round and can be trimmed in an artistic shape or left to grow into its natural form.
The flowering dogwood tree is most recognized for its flowers. It is a small deciduous tree that grows flowers in colors ranging from deep to light pink, white and white with a hint of green. In the winter, it sprouts clusters of red berries.
Tulip trees are a type of deciduous magnolia that grows in many parts of the Northeast. They are easily distinguished by their bright green lobed leaves and the yellow cup-shaped flowers that start to appear in the spring. Hummingbirds find this tree to be one of their favorites.
