It seems our living spaces are growing smaller every day, either by choice or by design.  That doesn’t mean you should scare away from planting trees.  Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they are good for your home value and great for the environment!

Whether you are looking for a tree that blooms, or maybe one that offers color all year long, or maybe your looking to add height and privacy to your landscape, there is a tree for you. Earl May offers several varieties that mature to a height of less than 25 ft.
