Planting Big Trees in Southern New Hampshire

Posted on Oct 5, 2015 in All, Design, Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

We’re sometimes asked what are the most spectacular changes that people can make to their landscapes quickly. One of our recommendations is to purchase the largest trees you can afford and plant them in thoughtfully selected locations on your property. Nothing transforms a landscape more dramatically than the addition of beautiful, mature trees.

Here’s an installation of large trees that we oversaw this summer for a client in nearby New Hampshire. These fabulous trees came from Select Horticulture, and the contractor was Skyline Nursery of Springfield, Vermont. O’Brien Tree Service of Putney, Vermont, operated the crane.
