Order Your Specimen Tree at Shonnard’s!

We are excited to now offer our customers the opportunity to order specimen trees.

What does it mean to order a specimen tree?

Specimen trees provide the beauty and the benefits of trees more rapidly than smaller nursery trees. Not only will they provide more flowers or shade sooner, but specimen trees have also been professionally pruned to develop a straight clean trunk and good branch structure.

We are able to order many varieties of specimen trees from a local nursery, to quickly provide the trees you need, and our landscape team can also arrange to deliver or install these larger trees. Stop and see the first sample tree, on display at the nursery as shown in the picture, of the smallest size of specimen tree available – and look for larger samples and more variety options as the fall planting season approaches.
