UTSThe Urban Tree Sale is back in full-swing for 2021! As usual, we are offering six different varieties of trees, each chosen specifically for their hardiness, size, maintenance, and adornment. Just like last year, we are experiencing record-fast sales and are encouraging all of our customers to stop by our website before the trees are all gone.

Our trees are priced at just $10-$30, and with deals like that, it’s hard not to see our selection in your front yard. Each spring, be wowed by our Scarlett Hawthorn blooms, experience the beauty of the ever-popular Snow Dogwood, and even turn heads with our Evergreen Magnolia.
