A Sense of Place.
Our hometown provides what many of us long for: a sense of place.
Maybe it’s the front porches scattered about the old homes of the historic district that draws you to this place. Or it could be the giant live oak and loblolly pine trees that have lived in harmony with the folks in this town for the last hundred years. A nice sidewalk. A love of historic architecture. An appreciation of parks and outdoor spaces and kayak trails on the river. And mostly, the love of a neighborhood.

Trees are one of the most valuable parts of your landscapes here in the Central Texas area. They can increase real estate values as well!
The big question is, do you want leaves year round or not?
- Trees that lose their leaves in winter are “deciduous”
- Leaves (foliage) year-round is an “evergreen”
Deciduous trees are particularly useful where you want shade in the summer and sun in the winter. It’s important to plant wisely and with the right variety. Deciduous trees to consider include Pecan and Lacy Oak.
Evergreens include Chinese Pistachio and Live Oak.
Dripline – The distance from the tree’s trunk to the outer edge of the branches. The critical area for a tree’s survival.
