There’s a popular Chinese proverb that says, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” Northwood Hills’ trees took some big hits this year, which is devastating for many reasons including visual appeal, shade, and property value, just to name a few. NHHA member Amy Schellhorn reached out to WW Tree Farms to secure a 20% discount for those homeowners looking to replace trees that were destroyed. Since fall and winter are a great time to plant trees, and NWH residents can get 20% off, this could be your chance to fill a void left by our recent storms.

Some of the trees recommended are Live Oaks, Bur Oaks, Red Oaks, Cedar Elms, Chinese Pistache, Bald Cypress and Maples. To learn more about types, sizes, and pricing, visit the Tree Farm at 11641 Newberry, Dallas, TX 75229 or call William Young at (214) 226-2076. They have many more trees available than the ones in stock and can work with you to find the right tree for your property. All of WW Tree Farm prices include delivery, planting, and a one year warranty. Possible additional costs include a daily rental fee of $750 for a Skytrac and $250 for materials for plants 8″ and larger in caliper. If you order multiple trees for your property or combine your order with your neighbor, the Skytrac cost can be shared.

Tree Farm hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday. You can coordinate with interested neighbors for shared deliveries or reach out to Amy at to find out about a potential bulk delivery date in January or February. 

A District 13 constituent, Brant Landry, coordinated with Texas Tree Farms for a 33% discount off retail on trees, bushes, flowers, greenery, mulch, granite, and pea gravel. Since Texas Tree Farms is located farther away from our neighborhood (3150 South Highway 287, Waxahachie, TX 75165), Brant is hosting a Q&A at his office building at 12404 Park Central Drive on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 6:30pm. This will be your opportunity to ask questions about what to plant and what different species are available. In addition, orders can be placed in person with Texas Tree Farms after the meeting. If you are ready to purchase now, you can email to begin the process. Make sure to reference Landry Buying Group to secure the discount. 

Fannin Tree Farm is offering special pricing for storm victims. They have hundreds of beautiful trees ranging in size from 45 gallon to field-grown 12″ caliper and larger specimens in stock. For more information and pricing, contact Bonnie Reynolds or Margie Webb and reference REPLANT TOGETHER. Bonnie can be reached at 469-631-9131 and Margie can be reached at 214-585-7614.

It is recommended to take the next several weeks to prepare your areas for tree planting. If you are going to plant where an existing tree was located then the stump needs to be ground at least 24 inches below the surface. You also might need to have root removal done. You might want to have your arborist/landscape company come out and prepare the areas prior to ordering.

Our thanks to Amy Schellhorn and Brant Landry for their efforts in securing discounts for our residents.
