Trees are the focal point of any landscape. They are valued not only for their beauty and longevity, but also for the comfort they provide. The cooling shade of a tree provides respite on a hot, summer day and can save money too. A well placed shade tree can lower the temperature of a home by up to 20 degrees and reduce electric bills by as much as 10 percent. Trees purify the air, act as wind and sound barriers, and provide both food and shelter to birds and other wildlife. They are, quite simply, the most amazing, versatile, and majestic of plants.
In 2001, Shades of Green started our tree farm, Brillo Verde, a few miles north of Frisco in Collinsville. The farm insures that we always have a good supply of quality, Grade #1 native and well-adapted shade and ornamental trees at the most competitive price points.
