Am I Missing A Southern Live Oak Tree?

Am I Missing A Southern Live Oak Tree?

Spring is here, it is time to play, I think I will go out and tend to my garden today. Recently I relocated my family to a new home, a pretty home but not much to look at outside. When the weather started to get warmer I thought to myself about what I could do to make the view out my front windows more appealing to the eye. I started a garden walk along the front, graced it with as many flowering shrubs plants and ornaments as I could to get the look I was longing for. However, something was still missing.

I took the time, I planted and weeded and made my garden look good but it just was not enough. My garden still needed that wow factor. I needed the last piece of the puzzle to make it complete. Then as if some huge bell had dinged,” I got it, I need a tree.” However, not just any tree, a glorious tree! A tree that will not just look great all year round, but a tree that will stand the tests of time.

I searched high and low for the tree in my dreams, the tree that would make my garden complete. The tree I found that was perfect was a beautiful cathedral, southern live oak tree. The southern live oak tree speaks volumes when in a garden or lavish landscape. It says “Hello, look at me, I will make your garden complete.” These live oaks give off a sense of elegance, strength, and longevity wherever they can be seen, which makes it perfect for me. I usually see these towering wonders along the back roads between my new home and our little town covering the roads with there friendly canopies.

Once I had decided that the southern live oak was for me there was no stopping me. I looked and looked for a nursery with live oak trees for sale perfectly suited for me. I happened upon Southern Pride Tree Farm. The name of the nursery sells itself. There they had the most gorgeous 12ft cathedral live oak trees I had ever seen. Their potential for growth and beauty oozed out of them. I chose my tree and soon after had her planted deep with in the earth settled in the center of my garden.

This simple yet majestic southern live oak tree transformed my garden in one fell swoop. Now I can look out my front windows and know that to me, my garden is as perfect as it can be.

Planting My Privacy Trees

Planting My Privacy Trees

“I finally have my gorgeous live oak privacy trees in my yard! I could not be happier with my choice of mature trees for my landscape. The wholesaler Southern Pride Tree Farm did an excellent job of delivering my trees on time and my landscaper did a wonderful job of planting my new trees. Now when I look out my picture window I see these amazing trees instead of just grass and a road. It really adds a lot of romantic class to my home.

The process was a little intimidating at first but it all went a lot smoother than I thought it would. When I first contacted Southern Pride to order my privacy trees it was explained to me that I would need to contact a landscaper to help move these trees into place. Since the trees for privacy I ordered weigh 10,000 pounds each my landscaper would have to have the proper equipment to handle this job.

Luckily the landscaping company I have been using the last few years had experience moving big trees so that was a big plus for me. Since I was going to have 5 1/2 feet deep holes dug into my yard for the trees to be placed into I also had to contact my utility companies to come and mark off where all the lines ran on my property.

So on the day I had set to have my trees delivered the landscapers came out to dig these holes and I swear to you they were big enough for a person to jump down in there and not be seen. I was almost tempted to try it! I was really worried that the equipment might cause damage to my yard or the sidewalks but again my landscaper came through for me and there were no problems.

My live oak trees really do look great now (even the neighbors came out to watch them plant my trees!) and I am sure that despite my lack of a green thumb they will thrive. The owner of Southern Pride Tree Farm Jimmy Gray, has been growing live oak trees for over 20 years according to the website. They also assured me that if I ever have any questions or concerns about my trees I can call them for support.

All in all I received a fair wholesale price on my three trees, I received great service, and I am beyond THRILLED with how my yard looks. I would happily recommend Southern Pride and do business with them again.

Privacy Trees

Privacy Trees

I need some privacy trees! Looking out at my boring flat green lawn is one thing but beyond that is the gorgeous road. Well… I would not call it gorgeous… more like ugly, and noisy! Then of course across the street are my neighbor’s houses which really do not make the best of views. Don’t get me wrong I live in a beautiful subdivision but I still feel that nagging desire to plant some nice trees for privacy.

There are a variety of fast growing privacy trees at the local tree nurseries but none of them seem just right for me. I do not really have the patience to wait years to grow beautiful tall privacy trees. I also considered the more typical privacy shrubs trees style but I really have fallen in love with the idea of big shade privacy trees.

So my search for the best privacy trees begins and naturally I turn to the internet for some inspiration! They have everything online after all and what better way to also find cheap privacy trees. My first thought was that I want to think about how I would go about landscaping privacy trees in my yard. My yard is fairly large in the front and established trees might be best in my opinion to avoid years of waiting for large privacy trees.

My next step was to research good privacy trees used for privacy in my region which happens to be in the south east. I wanted trees that provide privacy which also were easy to maintain and not easy to kill… I don’t have much of a green thumb! I admit I am instantly drawn to varieties of oak, especially those grand live oak trees that bring to mind old photographs of gorgeous southern plantation homes.

Digging in a little deeper in my search for the best trees to plant for privacy in my yard I find out there are three types of live oaks that a tree nursery provides. One is called a Highrise live oak tree and it is one of the more narrow privacy trees. Then there is a Standard live oak which is allowed to develop naturally. Finally my favorite one which is called a Cathedral live oak which is tall and dense, perfect for blocking out noise and providing good privacy.

Now I know what I want but I need to research where to buy privacy trees that deliver to my location and then of course a service which offers planting privacy trees for me, since the trees would already be large, just what I want. Obviously this took me a while to do and I made several phone calls to compare cost but I finally settled on a company called Southern Pride Tree Farm out of this little town I never heard of before called Bell, Florida.

They seemed to know more about their live oak trees than other nurseries and more importantly… assured me they would explain exactly how to care for it! Sigh of relief here, I hate to be a burden but I am just not great with live plants. All of the plants in my house are plastic. Now I am just waiting on my order which I am having delivered next week and I will update the blog when I get my new live oak privacy trees.
