Ornamental Trees

Ornamental Trees are broadly described as any tree not grown specifically for its fruit. As you can imagine this includes a wide range of trees both large and small. Whatever your garden size we stock a wide range of ornamental trees to suit. Many varieties can be grown in pots or pruned to provide natural screening and structure to the garden. Larger trees can be planted for a grand focal point. Ornamental trees are also great for the environment and a magnet to wildlife attracting birds and useful insects in to your garden.

We cultivate many varieties of ornamental trees here in the Rocky Mountain Nurseries enabling us to offer hardy garden ready trees at unbeatable prices.
