As our season winds to a close we are reminded of all the important things we have to be thankful for, most of all, friends and family. We celebrate new people in our family this year and many great accomplishments by so many of our family members. I could write a mini book on it but I guess we can save this all for Facebook!
Springvale Nurseries has undergone some major changes over the past year. We have closed our garden center and have downsized our container production dramatically. We intend to continue to grow our line of True Bloom Roses and a good selection of native shrubs and perennials. These will be made available both to the general public and to the wholesale trade.
So then let me tell you about the many other products and services we have to offer. Our business began with and will continue to focus on –
Here are some of the categories of trees and services we have to offer:
Large Deciduous Trees:
Our deciduous trees range in size from small whips or lightly branched 3’ – 8’ trees in a wide range of species up to monster sized specimen trees up to 10” and up to 30 ft. tall.
These are not cheap but will make an instant impact on your home or property. Check out our Gallery for pictures of many such specimen trees.
Very Large Specimen Conifers:
We are pleased to offer some super large Evergreens for any situation. These are “one of a kind” items and could create a great focal point for municipal or commercial sites.
Commercial and Park Grade Trees:
For mass plantings not requiring specimen quality we also off commercial and park grade trees which can be purchased at bargain pricing. These are healthy trees but without perhaps perfect shape and some may have minor healed wounds.
Bare Root Trees:
During the spring and fall digging periods we can supply large quantities of bare root trees at great prices for that large planting job with a limited budget. These must be dug and planted while dormant so there is a pretty limited window of time. Ask us about available species for this type of planting.
Trees for Wet Sites:
We do offer some species that will perform well in wetter conditions. It is important to choose the right trees for these applications.
Hedgerows and Border Plantings:
In the search of privacy these days, many people enjoy the benefits of a live border planting rather than a fence. These can be installed quickly and economically and you have the benefit of increasing privacy and natural beauty over time. These are many choices which can be used as hedging material. Many people like evergreens and they provide year –round screens. but many deciduous trees can also be adapted to a hedgerow or property line situation.
Commercial and Industrial Plantings:
Over the past few years Springvale has taken on and successfully completed some excellent commercial projects as full scale landscaping including planting, structural work, seeding, sodding, etc. We are proud to have worked on some of the provinces premier projects in the past few years and are always open to bidding these jobs, particularly when they involve large tree planting projects.
Our staff has provided trees on a good number of residential properties and can provide access to design service and extra customer care. We would love to work with you to create your dream backyard or garden.
Unusual and Specimen Trees:
You will find a rather large selection of one of kind items for that special place on your property. You can only get a real understanding of what we can do for you by coming here to tour our fields. But, please check out our gallery of pictures for some ideas.
Large Specimen Shrubs
We are really just getting started at this but over the next few years we expect to be able to offer individual pieces of some exceptional plant material in larger than usual sizes for the instant results you are looking for.
What have I forgotten?
If I haven’t hit your hot button, why not give me a call and we will discuss your personal and specialized need or desires. If it is plant related, we can do it!
We hope you have enjoyed this little virtual trip around our nursery and glimpse into the products and services we can offer. I urge you to come for a field tour and pick out our own special trees. I will personally take you around and show you what we can do. We also travel to make personal consultations on worthwhile project.
How May We Help You!?
