Selling evergreen trees is where it all started for Nature Hills way back in 2001. Nature Hills turned a small, regional conifer tree farm into America's Largest Online Plant Nursery!
Along the way, we've learned a thing or two about what our customers are looking for...all across the country from Zone 3 to Zone 10! Buy healthy, well-rooted, fast growing evergreen trees and shrubs...the easy way with Nature Hills.
Nature Hills sells and installs tall Fir trees, along with Spruce, Pine, Hemlock, Arborvitae, Cypress and many more in a set geographic region. Be sure to type in your zip code in our Zone Finder above the Plant Highlights to see if your preferred large evergreen plants are for sale in your area.
We also grow and ship well-rooted container trees right to your doorstep. Order your trees from us, and we'll send you a sturdy box at the right time for planting.
If you can swing it, order the largest size container we have in stock. Larger container sizes mean older trees...and when you buying "forever green" evergreen trees, that means many years.
Our expert growers devote 5 to 7 years of professional care into a #5 container Spruce tree, for instance. Nature Hills growers are the best in the business...and we take great pride in growing Evergreen Trees that are commercial-grade.
That's why professional landscape designers work with us every week. They source and purchase large evergreen trees from us to delight their clients with immediate visual impact.
Buying landscape plants is a balance between cost and time. Cheap evergreen plants like our #1 containers, or growing evergreen trees from cuttings can be a great way for budget-conscious gardeners to establish structure in their landscape over time.
If you need to hide a view in a hurry, the first choice is usually evergreen trees. In fact, one of our most often requested plants is fast growing tall evergreens!
The best way to support growth of your evergreens is by giving it the care requirements they need. We list the sun exposure, soil and water requirements on every product page...and don't forget the Nature Hills Root Booster in the planting hole!
When considering evergreens that grow quickly, one of our favorite wispy evergreen trees has to be the unique and versatile native Bald Cypress. This tall evergreen tree is actually deciduous and puts on an electric orange fall color display for you!
Strong hardwood Bald Cypress is one of the fastest growing evergreen trees and develops into a magnificent specimen. Grow it in wet soils for "knobs"...or use it on a dry site in a mulched bed for limited knob production.
Leyland Cypress is a great choice for certain areas. It grows tall quickly and has a dense branch structure.
If you have a lot of wind, you'll want to look at Thuja Green Giant Arborvitae with soft needles held in flat sprays. Provide consistent supplemental water for this landscape workhorse.
Broad-leaved evergreen trees like Edith Bogue Magnolia grow quickly into a dynamic flowering evergreen. Keep it as a tree-form or let it develop over time into a fragrant, large-scale, relatively fast-growing evergreen shrub hedge.
Don't forget about our broad-leaved, fast-growing evergreen shrubs for quick privacy. Sky Pencil Holly, Privet, Boxwood, Bay Laurel, Cherry Laurel are all sophisticated and effective screening solutions.
Along with year-round color, forest evergreen trees bring personality to your landscape, too. Spruce trees have stiff, short needles that look crisp and polished year-round.
Eastern White Pine trees feature long, soft, green needles that your kids will want to cuddle! Cold-hardy Canadian Hemlock trees grow into wise-looking fellows with pendulous branches that sway in the breeze.
Of course, nothing adds visual interest like our collection of specialty ornamental evergreen trees like Slenderina Weeping Blue Spruce...they'll grow into a "family pet" you'll lavish love on for many, many years.
Smaller evergreen trees like Dwarf Alberta Spruce add flair to mixed borders. You'll love their fluffy green growth in springtime!
For a compact choice to anchor your foundation planting, choose handsome Baker's Blue Spruce. It's a perfect size small live evergreen tree for narrow spaces and modern lots...but still delivers that uniform shape and steely-blue color everyone loves!
The rule of thumb is to include evergreens in ⅓ of your plantings! Evergreen trees offer year-round color and durable structure in your landscape.
Evergreens offer a range of hues from dark green to powder blue, but each tree remains the same color in deep winter or in summer heat. Evergreen trees provide welcome interest in landscapes that are devoid of color due to cold weather, dry weather, or barren ground.
Evergreen trees are versatile and can be used as specimens, hedges, and privacy screens. They are also utilized as a windbreak planted on the north or in the path of prevailing winds to deflect or intercept winds.
You can plant evergreen trees on the north or northeast side of your home to catch snow and decrease wind speeds. Evergreens are also placed on the oceanside or lakeside to provide shelter from prevailing winds.
Of course, evergreen trees, such as the Arborvitae, are used in countless locations as screening plants. Learn how to create a private backyard here.
Evergreens are used as the consummate living Christmas decoration for hundreds of millions of homes. Try ordering smaller evergreen trees or custom topiaries to use in outdoor garden containers for a high-end look all year.
Use our Zone Finder to know your USDA Plant Hardiness Zone before buying evergreen trees online. The best evergreen tree for Growing Zone 8 may not tolerate the cold winters of Zone 4.
Evergreen trees retain the majority of their green foliage through the winter. These enduring structure plants truly do remain "ever greens", but that's not to say that you won't see some periodic shedding, or needlecast.
Evergreen trees hold onto their needles longer than deciduous trees do, but they still have a renewal cycle. Depending on the species, it could be a two-year cycle or a yearly cycle.
The Pine family of evergreens includes the Scotch, Ponderosa, White, and Austrian Pine. Firs and Spruce trees also belong in the evergreen family.
Narrow-leaved evergreens are also known as conifers. Broad-leaved evergreens keep their large leaves all winter, but will shed them in long cycles, too.
Some broad-leaved evergreens remain semi-evergreen. In warm winters, they stay green but can lose their leaves in cold winters.
Dig a hole deep enough to fit the root ball in...then widen it twice the width of the root ball. This will give your tree room to grow.
Add Nature Hills Root Booster, then place the tree in the hole. Backfill, then saturate the tree to eliminate air pockets.
Mature evergreen trees do display moderate drought tolerance. However, we advise supplemental water be given in hot, dry weather and heading into winter to protect your tree.
We highly recommend that you give evergreen trees the space they need to reach the mature height and width listed on every product page. Make a great choice and you'll eliminate 99% of any pruning tasks.
For a lawn tree, remove sod underneath and mulch. Avoid pruning off the lower limbs, as they will never grow back.
Shape container-grown trees with a light shearing in late winter or early spring. Look for ways to hide your strategic pruning cuts back within the canopy, to avoid seeing harsh stub ends.
