I have a dead tree in my front yard, which I need to replace in the next 3 weeks.

I know I could do a google search, but I thought I'd ask here first - does anyone have a recommendation for a reputable nursery or tree farm. I'd love to find a place that will plant the tree at a reasonable cost.

The tree needs to be a minimum of 3" caliper, which rules out places like Home Depot.

I'm in the Heritage community in north FW.

Thanks!

Calloway's is a good place to start. There's also a BIG nursery on Hwy 26 in Grapevine...Bloomin COlors, I think...it's right across from the Wal-Mart next to the car wash, and they have big trees.

I like the Plant Shed. I understand Calloway's to be Californian and stock mostly plants that do well in California, not here. I'd be careful about selecting a tree that will survive another year of drought conditions and hot weather.

TAMU has nice resources, including this tree selector - Texas Tree Selector.

I believe there is a tree farm on Keller Parkway West of the railroad tracks.
East of Basswood near Alta Vista.

We used The Lawn Firm for extensive landscaping and irrigation. Plus - they guarantee their stock for 12 months.

almost any nursery/landscaper will guarantee for 12 mo--we had Petersen's redo our front bed and they did--planted shrubs, two Tiny Tower cypress trees, some daylilies...

the Blooming Colors on Colleyville is kind of hit or miss for planting choice
try the tree nursery farther south on Hwy 26--kind of set back from the road--
they had a sale sign out last time I was by this week

and there is tree nursery on 1709 between Calloways store there and Carroll avenue

Yes, that's the place! The car wash is now a liquor store, but the tree place is still there.

Actually, I recently purchased a great tree recommended for our extreme weather conditions at the Calloway's on 1709 in Southlake. There are several tree farms along 1709, and Calloway's had the variety I wanted at a price I liked.
