February is known for romantic dinners, chocolate, and bouquets of flowers. Depending on the type of flower and color, a lot of meaning can be conveyed. Someone could easily confuse their love interest by giving a dozen yellow roses, which typically symbolize friendship, instead of a red or pink variety to communicate romantic love. Trees hold unique symbolism and communicate different messages depending on the variety as well. Although flowers may seem like the obvious Valentine gift, a tree could be an equally symbolic gift which lasts for much longer than a bouquet of roses.
Consider how these trees you may have in your own yard may be deeply symbolic:
The Oak Tree—Regarded as the strongest tree as it endures for hundreds of years, the oak tree symbolizes courage, power, strength, health, morale, luck, wisdom, and resistance. Over the years, they have been considered holy places as well as sources of healing by Native American cultures. An oak tree could communicate a love which lasts for all of time, regardless of challenges.
The Cherry Tree—Popular for their beautiful blossoms which last briefly in the spring, cherry trees symbolize romance, luck, happiness, and rebirth. Cherry trees have strong ties to Japanese culture as they are thought to symbolize their rebirth in the eighth century. A gift of a cherry tree could communicate the beauty of love as well as the importance of enjoying the moment together.
The Birch Tree—Birch trees symbolize hope, protection, and love. They are beautiful year-round which could communicate messages about an enduring love that lasts through every season. With their symbolism for protection, birch trees are commonly used in baby cribs.
The Maple Tree—Known for their ability to adapt to different climates and soil varieties, the maple tree symbolizes balance, promise, longevity, abundance, and success. Maple trees being the source of syrup could be a sweet symbol for an abundant and successful romance. Their vibrant red leaves can also communicate love and passion.
The Dogwood Tree—Popular in landscaping, a dogwood tree communicates durability, loyalty, kindness, fertility, stability, and good luck. Dogwood trees are known for being resilient while still appearing delicately beautiful with their white flowers. A gift of a dogwood tree could communicate the beauty of your love in every season of life and through challenges.
If you are thinking of something smaller in size or not found in your backyard, explore these natural gift ideas:
Seeds—This option is probably only ideal if your love has a green thumb. If you are both gardeners, growing something from a seed could be a special memory together.
A Fruit Tree—Instead of giving your love a fruit basket, you are giving them a gift of fruit for the years to come. Many fruit trees can be grown indoors or outdoors, depending on your climate. For example, a lemon tree could be a great choice, so they have a refreshing twist for their glass of tea or for a delicious pie.
A Bonsai Tree—Bonsai trees are small and easy to care for, so they are an ideal tree to represent harmony, goodness, and balance. Not only do they look beautiful, they also help purify the air of your home. Clean air and a gorgeous decorative accent are gifts that can be enjoyed year-round.
Gift a Tree to a National Forest—If your love is passionate about nature, but does not need something to care for, gifting a tree in their honor could be a great gift. There are several groups which will plant a tree in your love’s honor and send a certificate with their name.
Once you have finished shopping for your valentine’s gift, show some love to your trees and call 770-Tree-Guy for some preventative care and maintenance. Proper care each season is the best way to have your trees last for the years to come.
The trees in your yard can greatly complement your home and improve the natural beauty of your property. Not all trees are good choices regardless of how beautiful they may seem. As certified arborists, we are well-versed in the benefits and drawbacks of different trees, so we compiled a list of trees to avoid. If these problematic trees are already in your yard, the team at 770-Tree-Guy will be glad to help you minimize the negative impact through proper care and preventative measures.
Bradford Pear Trees—In the spring, they look like they are beautifully blanketed in snow. Their aesthetic appeal is obvious with such delicate white flowers. Unfortunately, the drawbacks of the Bradford Pear Tree are considerable. First off, if you have ever been in close proximity at all to the tree, you will remember the horrible fishy smell which comes with those gorgeous white blossoms. Beyond the unpleasant odor, it is notorious for spreading thorny seedlings, which cross pollenate with other varieties of pear trees, creating thorny thickets. These thorny brambles can cause significant problems alongside roads, fence lines, and fields. Bradford Pear Trees also fair pretty poorly during storms due to their branch structure. Because homeowners are becoming aware of the problems with Bradford Pears, thankfully, fewer people are planting them currently.
Leyland Cypress Trees—Whether looking for a large green tree to improve landscaping or a fast -growing tree to provide privacy coverage, homeowners choose these green giants for a variety of reasons. The Leyland Cypress is also a popular choice because of its ability to grow quickly in a variety of soils. The benefits can be quickly overwhelmed by the possible problems. Many homeowners may not realize the growth potential of these evergreen trees: over 100 feet tall and about half as wide. What starts a simple privacy tree could easily outgrow the space you intend. Beyond the out of control growth, the Leyland Cypress is prone to Bagworm infestations and diseases, such as Seiridium and Botryosphaeria cankers and needle blight. Because of the close proximity these trees are planted to each other, they can spread these diseases rapidly, killing off trees aggressively. Although extra pruning and TLC may minimize the impact of some insect or disease issue, the considerable risk is still there. Choosing a different tree which can still provide the benefits without the significant drawbacks would be wise.
Mimosa Trees—Mimosa trees have the most beautiful flowers for about two weeks during the summer, but they look horrible for the rest of the year. Not only do they look unattractive most of the time, they are also prone to insects and disease. Their roots are invasive so they may also be causing problems for your other trees below the surface. Additionally, their seedlings easily spread within a ¼ mile of your tree. You and your neighbors will be better off without a mimosa tree.
Silver Maple—Think of the Silver Maple as the band-aid solution for homeowners who want quick shade. They grow about 3 feet a year and can reach up to 70 feet eventually. Often, the fastest solution is not the best solution. Silver Maples may bring quick shade, but they also bring an abundance of potential problems. They do not handle stormy weather well so you could end up with damage to your home or property. Their roots are invasive so they can cause problems for your other plants as well as they can cause your sidewalks to crack. Also, the roots can invade your water lines, causing significant issues for your home. The Silver Maple will drop a ton of seeds so you could end up with countless Silver Maples to plague your yard. Buy yourself an umbrella for shade and leave the Silver Maple out of your yard.
Eastern Cottonwood—With a fluffy white appearance, the Eastern Cottonwood is aptly named. Unfortunately, the list of problems with this tree add up unbelievably fast. They are high-maintenance and messy so you will constantly be cleaning up around this one. When storms come, the delicateness of this tree does not survive well. If those reasons are not substantial enough, the Eastern Cottonwood is prone to disease and insects. Equally important, the roots are incredibly invasive, wreaking havoc on your other tree roots, sidewalks, and water lines. For a tree that does not even look that great, the negatives greatly outweigh any benefit.
Hackberry—When you cannot seem to grow anything else, a Hackberry can make it. This hardy tree can handle drought, terrible soil conditions, wind, and heat. The adaptability of the Hackberry is truly the only thing going for it. The tree is incredibly messy so you will be working harder on your yard maintenance. Even worse, the berries of the tree are loved by birds so they will spread seedlings everywhere. Birds are not the only fan of this tree. Aphids love to snack on the Hackberry leaves, which causes a sticky substance to drop on the ground and encourage black mold growth around the base of your tree. No yard is improved by the presence of sticky and unsightly mold.

Although trees bring beauty and life outdoors year-round, the Christmas season spotlights the beauty of a tree on the inside of your home. Whether your family gets a fresh Christmas tree from a farm or uses a fake tree, a Christmas tree is a beautiful focal point for decorating, but also carries the stories and memories of the homeowner.
The Roots of Christmas Trees:
The history of the Christmas tree has been traced back to 16th century Germany, when Christians placed trees in their homes and decorated them with candles. Some historians have credited the candles to Martin Luther, the Protestant Reformer. It is said that he was inspired by the lights in the night sky. The tradition of the Christmas tree eventually was brought over by German settlers. By 1890, the tradition had spread throughout America and ornaments were being sent over from Germany. In the beginning, many Americans were decorating their trees with homemade ornaments, using fruit, nuts, and popcorn. Over the years, our candles have turned into strings of lights and our ornaments have become shatterproof, but the joy of decorating has held strong for years.
Finding Your Tree:
If your family is considering which tree would be best for your needs, our trained arborists at 770-Tree-Guy can offer some benefits and drawbacks worth mentioning. Although there are many varieties, the most popular tree varieties include:
Balsam Fir—This tree is a favorite for more than just its appearance. The Balsam fir is considered the most fragrant variety of Christmas tree. When you choose the Balsam, your home looks festive, but also smells festive all season long. One drawback to consider is how quickly it will dry out. If you do not check the water regularly, your tree may be dropping needles before the season is over.
Douglas Fir—A Douglas fir is known for its cone like shape and full body. If you are looking for a tree which will fill a large space, this tree has the body for it. Generally speaking, this tree cannot handle heavier ornaments, which could be a drawback for some homeowners.
Fraser Fir—The Fraser fir has a dark color on top and a silvery glisten on the underside. It is known for being a stiff and hardy tree, capable of holding heavy ornaments. Also, the Fraser has a long lifespan, sometimes lasting up to 6 weeks without dropping needles. They are the second most fragrant variety.
Artificial Tree—An artificial tree has multiple benefits in terms of cost and ease of care. Unfortunately, even the most convincing ones cannot truly mimic the beauty and smell of a real tree. Although as tree enthusiasts, we can certainly understand wanting to use a fake tree instead of chopping down a tree that is alive and thriving.
Whether you appreciate the beauty of trees through a real or artificial Christmas tree, you are still celebrating the splendor of nature, the magic of the holiday season, and the warmth of making and sharing memories. Merry Christmas from our 770-Tree-Guy family to yours! May your holidays be warm and bright!
