Tree Sales

Many of the trees we sell are from our own tree farm. Sometimes, however, we are unable to overwinter certain species, so we try to purchase anticipated trees in bulk every spring. Also at times we purchase small trees from a local nursery. Regardless of the source, JTC can usually obtain any species of tree you wish.

Tree Pruning

Landscape trees require a higher level of care than do their forest counterparts. A professionally maintained yard tree is both safe and attractive. You can protect your investment in your trees by hiring a ISA certified arborist from the Johnson Tree Company (JTC) who understands your tree’s response to pruning.
