Selecting Mature Live Oak  Trees

According to a 1998 University of Florida study, landscaping plays a large role in the resale of property. The report states that homes with mature trees and added landscaping color are sold more quickly. Another report by The Associated Landscaping Contractors of America states, that a beautifully landscaped yard with mature trees such as the Southern Live Oak will generate an average 200% return on their investment of the tree.

In the South, when people think of mature trees they usually think of cascading live oak trees draped with moss, in parks and lining homes along city streets. If you are a homeowner in the southern United States who is considering adding mature trees to enhance your property, you should consider live oaks. It is wise to determine which size of live oak you will need; how to recognize high quality live oaks; and where to make your purchase.

Southern Pride Tree Farm specializes in selling large high quality live oak trees. Since the 1990's every oak tree for sale at Southern Pride has been the healthiest tree possible for our customers in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and coastal South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginiana. Southern Pride Tree Farm is where to buy large live oak trees. We have worked with homeowners, landscapers, developers and cities to recognize and select high quality trees. Our staff emphasizes the importance of proper transport, planting and gives excellent advice about the care of these magnificent trees.

All Southern Pride oak trees for sale are field grown which have been shown establish in the landscape faster when compared to container grown trees: Southern Pride Tree Farm does not rush the growth of their trees; root pruning allows for strong, solid root systems and curing or hardening off means that the trees are dug in winter months while dormant and show new root growth before sending to a customer. Above the ground, proper pruning of trees during the early growth stages is a priority to remove weak branches so the older branches as the tree grows are the strongest branches of the tree.

Southern Pride Tree Farm grows three varieties of Live Oak trees, each with very distinct characteristics: The Highrise® live oak is the perfect choice when space is limited; The Cathedral® live oak is more of a dense shade tree and frequently used for privacy; and, The standard live oak is perfect for the natural southern landscape with tall or sprawling landscape designs.

Southern Pride also sells to individual homeowners. For years Southern Pride Tree Farm has offered large live oak trees for sale at the same wholesale pricing to homeowners that landscapers, developers and cities receive when purchasing trees..
