Scale the natural beauty

Trees are functional by nature. Trees provide fruits and food, homes for critters and birds, and they recycle the air that we breathe. But trees are more than functional, they are also naturally beautiful.

Planting a Feature Tree in your yard is one way to scale the natural beauty of trees, while adding value to your property. How? They create a focal point in your yard that highlights a specific tree or space where a tree acts as the featured element.

One example is feature trees as symbolic, such as a tree that was chosen to remember a lost loved one that you may want to build a walkway leading up to it. A second example is a tree that is already in its natural place that becomes a Feature Tree by upgrading the space with a bench or sitting area.

Like how your home may have a statement piece such as a bright painting or piece of furniture that was designed for the space, feature trees make a statement.


Common feature trees include:

  • Maples
  • Willows
  • Redbuds
  • Magnolias
  • Dogwoods
  • Cherry trees
  • Cedars
  • And pines
