Our Best Selling Trees
Heritage Live Oak Tree
Heritage live oak trees are evergreen and are great trees for your front yard or backyard. With the unbearable heat in Houston, the Heritage Live Oak is the perfect tree to withstand these conditions, providing perfect shade to keep you cool.
Red Oak Tree
The Red Oak tree is also another awesome shade tree. Since the branches spread so widely, its best to have a large space for this kind of tree. A Red Oak is known to grow as big as 60-80 feet tall, and 40-60 feet wide. The nice thing about this tree is that it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance, but remember it’s always best to plant a tree in good soil with good fertilizer. The time frame for growth in these trees is under five years, but once they start getting larger, they tend to grow rapidly.
When fall comes, the leaves will start to turn from green to red and orange. Don’t worry, this is just part of the many development stages in growing trees. If you have a red oak tree or know somebody that does, feel free to share your input, as we’d love to hear what you have to say.
Pine trees might be most important for their timber and wood pulp, but here in Houston and other areas, pine trees live in many yards. If you’re wanting something that grows straight in the air like a skyscraper, this might be your tree. We have a nice tree nursery full of pine trees at our Manvel location just located outside of Houston. If you are look for a good shade tree, the pine tree is nowhere near the best shade tree. Pine trees are evergreen, meaning they grow year around and can get as big as 81 meters tall which is around the size of the tallest pine tree ever known to man. Pine trees average size is between 15-45m tall, so don’t think your kids will be climbing up these trees.
Bald Cypress are beautiful trees, and is very different from the rest of trees Independent Trees Services specializes in. So everything is bigger in Texas? We’ll so are these trees reaching 25-40m tall. Bald cypress grows on flat ground and on wetlands. Bald cypress act to climate changes in the different seasons of the year. During winter, their leaves turn red-orange and soon start falling off. When Spring time is back, the bald cypress will eventually grow back its leaves.
