Trees for Small Spaces

Snow Fountains Weeping White Cherry

Snow Fountains Weeping White Cherry

Many of our customers find that their space for trees is limited by the size of their yard, or by the location of buildings and other features. We do have a variety trees that can fill these spaces beautifully. The Snow Fountains White Weeping Cherry is a tree that will reach 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide while providing an abundance of white blooms early in the spring.

Measure your space carefully to make sure that your trees will fit the space as they grow. A common mistake is to place a tree too close to a structure when it is young, and where pruning will ultimately become a burden and will affect the beauty of the tree.

Bring us the dimensions of your landscape bed and note where windows, doors, sidewalks and other building features may affect the placement of your new tree. Sometimes a tree isn’t the proper solution to your landscape problem, but read on for a list of small trees that can fit most tight spaces happily.
