At Fort Collins nursery, we have a large selection of shade and ornamental trees to fit all your planting needs.  We realize the perfect tree for your space is dependent on your location and a variety of factors including space, soil type, amount of sunlight and personal preference. Our expert sales staff can help you assess your needs in order to match you with the perfect tree. We have maples that tolerate our alkaline soils and provide great fall color. There are ornamental crabapples in fruitless and non-messy varieties for those who love the look but hate the clean-up. Versatile hawthorns bloom beautiful pinks, reds and whites in late spring to early summer and are usually unaffected by our late spring frosts. We have several varieties of redbud for many different planting situations and a wide variety of unusual or hard to find gingkos, beech, buckeyes, maackii, red-flowering horse chestnuts, and more.
