Tree Profiles

We are often asked “What species of trees are grown in the BOB! Community Tree Nursery?” People also want to know what the young tree planted in front of their house will look like when it grows up. We have over 30 different tree species or cultivars growing in our nursery at any one time.  This is to ensure that our urban forest has species diversity, to reduce impact from pests. Below is a list of many of them along with some of the trees we have sold in our annual tree sale.  Click on a tree name to get a full profile of that tree.


These profiles were prepared carefully based on information from multiple reliable websites by Maggie Citarella and Tom Roland, two of our BOB! Board members, and other guest authors.  Each month 1 or 2 of these profiles is featured in our newsletter.  This list will be continuously updated as profiles become available.
