Owned by the Esterline family since 1916, Eagle Creek Nursery helps gardeners cultivate greener spaces with a fully stocked nursery of plants, trees, and an extensive selection of horticulture gear. As customers wander beneath the greenhouse's caliper deciduous and evergreen trees amid tropical plants ($49.95), arborists and landscapers stand by to answer questions and counsel against gardening faux pas, such as overwatering a rock garden. Green thumbs can nurture buds within a selection of pots ($30+) or shape shrubbery sculptures with a pair of hand pruners ($19.95).
Though leaves may come and go, the arborists at Affordable Tree Care work throughout the year to keep yards safe and attractive. Despite the satisfaction they get from cutting through tangled branches and thickets, their primary concern is trees’ health. To keep backyards lush and leafy, they help trees recover from lightning strikes, seasonal diseases, and infestations of insects and Keebler elves. The team specializes in close quarter removal; they assess the likelihood of trees falling over and—if the risk is high—safely felling and removing the tottering giants.
