Did you know?

  • Trees can talk to each other through their roots?  They pass vital nutrients to help each other to stay healthy and communicate through chemical warnings if there is a threat to the population from a particular pest or disease. 
  • The trees in front of you are planted in one long trench. This specially designed planting pit has an inbuilt irrigation/aeration system to provide an active soil environment for healthy root development and interaction between the trees for stronger growth.  
  • Tassel Cherry gets their name from the blossom flowers that form drooping clusters of small, white flowers with long, hanging stamens giving the effect of tassels. 
  • The branches on Tassel Cherries are fastigiate (upright) with ascending growth making them an ideal choice in areas where space may be restricted.
