Red Horsechestnut: one of our most-requested trees. This tree is on the 300 block of North Street and has averaged 16" of annual growth with regular watering.




Buckeye and Goldenraintree: planted along North Alley, on the left is an Ohio buckeye with tan-colored buckeyes. On the right is a goldenraintree with interesting light green seed pods.
