Brillo Verde Tree Farm
Brillo Verde is the tree farm – and source of most of the trees and plants – for Shades of Green. It’s located in Collinsville, Texas and ships off plants ready to sell through the Shades of Green retail store in Frisco. Shades of Green management will come by and let Brillo Verde know which plants they want to bring in within the next couple days to be sold.
Trees are a little tricker, because just like plants, they have their own growth rate, except it can be years after planting when they are ready for sale. Sometimes it is difficult for nurseries when selling trees because you can’t exactly predict what customers are going to be looking for five years down the road.
