Planting Japanese Zelkova Trees

Tree planting continues at my Bedford, New York farm with a group of beautiful Japanese zelkova trees.

My gardeners and outdoor grounds crew are working very hard to plant as many saplings as possible before the ground freezes. The most recent project - a row of zelkovas along one section of my lower hayfield. Zelkova serrata is a medium-sized deciduous tree that typically grows up to 100-feet tall with a spreading, upward-branching, vase-shaped crown. Native to Japan, Taiwan, and eastern China, zelkovas are noted for their attractive bark and dense, clean foliage. These trees will look stunning in the landscape.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
