Do any of your evergreen trees look like these above?  This is winter burn and there is a lot of this on younger trees, after the long, cold winter we have had.  They are not dead so do not remove them even if they have brown or no needles on the whole tree.  To check to see if they are alive, out on the end of a branch scratch the bark slightly with your fingernail, it should be green and sappy if they are alive, and will be fine when the new growth comes out.

We have delivery routes scheduled this spring:

Cedar Falls IA to Mason City and west to Spencer, IA-- Middle of April

Kelly Tree Farm Windbreak Wins Award!

Brad and Patty Manuel from Olin, IA with their state award from Soil and Water Districts for Best Windbreak.  We planned, provided the trees and planted the windbreak in 2001.


A few of our over 20,000 potted leaf trees and evergreen trees.

   We do plant trees/shrubs through out Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nebraska

Roots from a walnut tree only 6 months old,  the tap root has been cut in a process called undercutting.  This is done during July and the tree immediately stops all top growth and then makes many lateral roots that are perfect for planting in the following spring.  We do this with most of our trees such as oaks, hickory, pecan, evergreens, and many others.

Remember that anyone can sell you a tree but if it does not survive or grows poorly in your area you have lost more than the price of the tree you have lost your time and that is something that cannot be replaced, Thank you for stopping by and hope to hear from you.
