Big Trees leaving for their real home

These 20 foot tall oak trees are leaving the farm they grew up at from an acorn for their forever home. They are carefully laid down on a long trailer, tied down and covered for a trip on the roads. Once the tree is near it's hole the fabric container is cut off and the tree is placed into the ground. Watering is very important until the tree is firmly grown in and a drip system is usually preferred. These evergreen trees will provide shade and privacy as soon as they are in the ground and more each year as they grow.

Coast Live Oak or CLO is a beatiful evergreeen tree

The Coast live Oak, Quercus agrifolia is the easy to grow native evergreen tree for much of California. It has dark glossy leaves and can have various different shapes. These are 5 foot diameter containers. We grew these from choice acorns started 12 years ago and this is the time of year to collect more acorns for next year's new little seedlings. Also known as Quercus agrifolia, these CLOs grow in most parts of the SF bay area and are fairly fast growing. They do very well here in Napa.

Big Trees on Big Trailer

Talented workers have no trouble loading large trees onto a long trailer to bring them to a new landscaping project. Large native trees transplant well when grown in porous fabric containers and loved between each repotting over the years. Natural shaping and real local soil produce nice large trees from carefully selected acorns. Planting a native oak tree will be a great investment for the future. These trees are Coast Live Oaks - also known as Quercus agrifolia.

Valley Oak Goes to a golf course

Dave Dexter and his crew from DEXTER estate landscapes moved this huge Valley Oak we grew to a Windsor, Sonoma County golf course from our growing ground at Main Street Trees in Napa. The lobata grew from an acorn that fell from the old trees on our property. This tree was about 15 years old. Valley Oaks are the most appropriate oak tree for our area with clay soil on the valley floor, although Coast Live Oaks grow great here too.
