Wintertime is the best time to trim shade trees.  The one above on the left is the wrong way to trim a tree.  It has a bad crotch only 3 ft from the ground, and limbs lower than 7 ft from the ground.  The tree on the right is trimmed correctly, single trunk, with no limbs 7 ft from the ground.  We can trim your trees properly this winter or advise you how to do it if you send us a picture of it.

Above picture is a serious problem with windbreaks in Iowa and everywhere.  Unwanted trees (Mulberries in this case) growing up among the evergreens.  These will eventually kill your evergreens if not taken out.  Wintertime is the best time to remove them.  Be sure to treat the stump with Roundup so they do not grow back.  NEVER use Tordon, Garlon or any other chemicals on the stumps or around your evergreens as it will KILL your evergreens.  We can remove them for you this winter, or advise you on the proper way to do it.

If you are thinking of a windbreak jump right over to our site we have for them: www.windbreaktrees.com

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 30,000 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.
