Best Winter Trees To Plant

Winter Trees Planting Omaha

One tree does not have a particular advantage over the other. This time of the year most deciduous trees (trees with leaves) go into dormancy, and that is the best time to field dig and plant winter trees before the ground freezes.

The concept is to plant winter trees when it is dormant so all of the trees’ energy goes to new root growth while the ground is cool in the fall and not frozen.

Best Winter Trees To Plant

Our most popular trees we plant in the fall are Maple trees because they give you the fall color and they  winter very well.

Maple Trees

One of the most popular landscape trees in North America, the maple tree, is prized for its beautiful fall foliage colors and its sap that’s used to make syrup. There are many different species of maple trees. All have a few common characteristics that make them stand out from other types of trees.

  • Autumn Blaze Maple
  • Red Sunset Maple
  • Fall Fiesta Sugar Maple
  • Autumn Fantasy Maple
  • Armstrong Maple
  • Royal Red Norway Maple
  • Amur Flame Maple
  • Green Mountain Sugar Maple
  • Amur Maple Clump
  • Shantung Maple
  • Armstrong Gold Maple
  • Bloodgood Maple
  • Crimson Queen Maple
  • Red Dragon Maple

Redbud Trees

Redbud’s delicate blossoms and buds are one of the season’s most dramatic displays. But this tree’s beauty doesn’t end with its flowery show. Unique and irregular branching patterns combine with a trunk that commonly divides close to the ground to create a very handsome, spreading and often flat-topped crown. Even in winter, covered with snow, the eastern redbud is stunning.

  • Eastern Redbud
  • Redbud Clump
  • Weeping Redbud (lavender twist)

Other winter Trees

Arbor Hill Tree Farm

Arbor Hills is a family owned and operated business. The tree farm is located in a valley of rolling hills near David City, Nebraska. The owner Ed DeWispelare, started growing trees on the 40 acre farm back in 1977. The nursery today consists of a large variety of high quality shade, ornamental and evergreen trees.

Our business concept is simple. We will provide the highest quality field grown trees or shrubs directly to our customers at the lowest possible price. To meet this objective, we grow most of our tree inventory and transport in bulk in early spring to a holding site in West Omaha for distribution. We also source other high quality trees and shrubs from other growers.
