The Red Oaks Are Coming!

The Chisos Red Oak, a New Mexico Native tree, and the Texas Red Oak will be featured as our November trees of the month. Be sure to check our Blog during November to learn more about their landscaping qualities. More importantly visit the nursery in November to enjoy their fabulous fall foliage which can be in tones of red, maroon, sometimes orange and yellowish. Additionally, as our featured tree of the month receive a discount on their purchase!
Each of our Red Oaks is propagated from acorns we’ve collected from specimens with strong characters. This makes each of these trees unique in their features, much like members of your family are different. The photo below shows Texas Red Oak leaves taken from different trees. They differ in leaf color, leaf margins, size and form.

There is a lot to see at ground level this time of year! While at the nursery or walking around your yard observe what’s happening at ground level!
Of course there’s mulch…

But also Acorns (English Columnar and Chinquapin OaksBelow),

samaras (Shantung Maple),

and various seed pods (Mimosa and Popcorn Trees Below) are falling to the ground…

Leaves in a rainbow of colors are accumulating.. Soapberry

Chinese Pistache

Cottonwood

Desert Willow

New Mexico Alder

Gambel Oak

Popcorn Tree

Sumac

Mulberry

Flowering Pear

These all return life and / or nutrients to the soil. Let them accumulate, decompose, build your soil, and feed your landscape….
If you need to move them, place them in your garden space or under your landscaping trees and shrubs or compost them.
Don’t Burn, Bag, or Haul them away as they return vitality to your soil…….

October Tree of the Month: Gambel Oak

Gambel Oak (Quercus gambelii) is a common New Mexico Native tree found at both higher and lower elevations of the local mountains. Gambel Oak is also called scrub oak, white oak, occasionally picnic area oak.

There are two Gambel Oak variants: one produces true single trunk type trees,
the other produces colonies via root sprouts. Root sprouts start out small
but eventually may cover entire hillsides. The colony producing types can form groves or thickets (mottes) covering large areas. These may be clones of only one genotype.Clonal type trees are usually shorter and thinner than single trunk types. The colony producing types are useful for production of wildlife areas.
Single trunk types can reach 30’ tall and 25’ – 30’ wide or more,

Giant Sequoia

The Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) is also known as the Giant Redwood, Sierra Redwood, and Wellingtonia.During the Jurassic Period (135 to 180 million years ago) and Cretaceous Periods (35 to 70 million years ago) Giant Sequoias were the dominant tree in Europe and North America. Today Giant Sequoias grow wild only on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. This area is characterized by dry summers and snowy winters and deep soil moisture. Giant Sequoia is related to the Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and the Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides).

Giant Sequoia is propagated from seeds produced in cones. Young trees start to produce cones when 12 years or older. Young trees are tall and conically shaped with an almost ideal Christ…
