Tucson is unique environment full of Rock, Drought and Freeze conditions. The combination of all of those leads to a new set of rules needing to be written. You see, the Tree Care provided in other parts of the country does not apply to Tucson.
Chris and Amanda's Tree Service has confronted the text books and on the job training coming out the other side better for it. Water the drip line? not in Tucson. Plant in full sun? not in Tucson. These are a few of the differences we face in the Old Pueblo. So, with that said, shouldn't the Tree Planting Tucson does be different too? We say yes.
For years Tucson has been plagued by nurseries that push and inventory of Pine Tree's, Eucalyptus, Willow Acacia, Sumac's and more. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a sound voice advising what are good tree's to plant in Tucson? Well that day is here. Chris and Amanda's Tree Service is offering video's with information covering a wide spectrum of Tree Service secrets normally paid for. Today we cover Tree Planting Tucson.
We have done 2 video's on the subject and I will give you the cliff notes versions. At the top of the list of good tree's to plant in Tucson is the Velvet Mesquite. Great slow growing hard wood tree that is drought tolerant and has artistic branches. Don't cut those lower branches off, they are needed. (watch our video how to trim a tree) Second on our list is the Palo Brea. This is a wide palo verde with artistic branches and very low trimming needs. (we have a video on the 5 palo verde's of Tucson so you can tell them all apart) Third on our list is the little known Twisted Acacia. What a unique tree! Wouldn't Tucson be better if this tree was planted instead of the Sweet Acacia? Who's idea was the Sweet Acacia? Fourth on our list is the Mexican Sycamore. This tree is not for the faint of heart as it will need some watering. Deciduous it drops its leaves and is very easy to clean up because the leaves re the size of dinner plates! This is a great shade tree for those summer months. I have grown one from 10 to 25 feet in 1 year!
This is our top 4.
We did a second video on unique tree's to plant in Tucson and you will have to watch that one. I will post it along with these words. Remember to give us a THUMBS UP and we answer all questions for advice when you COMMENT on our YouTube videos.
We hope this blog was helpful with Tree Planting Tucson and gave you some good Tree's to plant in Tucson. Thanks for all your Love and we will see you next time!
