Broyhill Park Tree Committee
Broyhill Park Tree Committee has several varieties of potted trees available FREE to Broyhill Park residents for planting in their yard.
Picture #1 left to right – 1 Black Locust, 2 Honeylocusts, 4 yr. saplings. Lacy foliage provides light shade and will not need to be raked. Honeylocusts make good street trees, as well.
Picture #2 – Sweetbay Magnolia, 3 yr. seedlings, blooms in spring, extremely fragrant flowers, should start blooming in 5 to 6 years
Picture #3 – Bigleaf Magnolia, 3 yr. seedlings, large fragrant blossoms in summer, should start blooming in 8 to 9 years. This is NOT the leathery leaved southern magnolia that gets too big for most suburban yards.
Please reply back if you would like any of these. Limit 2 per household, must be a Broyhill Park resident to qualify.
IMPORTANT: Planting at this time of year means that these trees MUST be watered regularly throughout the summer.
