Arbor Day is right around the corner, always the last Friday of April in Massachusetts. Get in the swing of spring by planting a tree that will bloom and attract bees and other pollinators. Most of these species will also shelter pollinators in winter, such as oak trees with their ridged bark. Many other native trees are recommended in the attached link from the Arbor Day Foundation.
One note: The crepe myrtle and Southern magnolia trees will not be hardy in our area – instead, enjoy them when you travel to the mid-Atlantic or South.
We at Pumpkin Brook are happy to help you select the right tree for your space. Mature size and amount of light available are just two important considerations. Please contact Priscilla Williams, <email@example.com> to arrange a site visit.
