How many times have you gone to the grocery store or farmer’s market and bought a fresh bushel of peaches? They are so good at this time of year and you probably find yourself going through a good amount of the delectable fruit. Have you ever thought about growing your own peaches in your own yard? Yes, that would be much easier than heading to the store every week, and much more convenient when you are craving some fresh peaches for breakfast in the morning. In Mooresville, we are fortunate enough to live in a climate that supports a large number of fruit bearing trees. The professionals at Tree Tech Tree Services are ready and willing to assist you in caring for your fruit trees no matter what kind you decide would be best for your yard. We also offer pruning, which can increase yield, specialized care for your fruit trees, and even tree removal when your fruit tree is at the end of its life. Let’s take a moment to look at some of the fruit trees that are common in this part of the country.
Nothing beats a fresh apple as a snack on a summer day. How incredible would it be if you could simply walk into your yard and pluck a juicy apple off of the tree? Amazing right? Apple trees do very well in our climate and are a great source of fruit in the season.
Pears are prevalent in North Carolina and are gorgeous when blooming in the spring, not to mention the delectable fruit. A pear tree will need a companion tree for a pollinator so make sure you plan accordingly.
You probably guessed already, we love peaches and your yard will welcome the addition of a peach tree. Unlike pears and pecans, a peach tree will self pollinate, meaning you can get by with just one, but why would you want to? More trees equals more peaches!
Pecans can be a bit more tricky to care for than the other fruit trees on this list. They require two or more trees to effectively pollinate and careful pruning to produce the maximum yield. Of course your tree care professionals at Tree Tech are always willing to provide arborist services for your fruit trees all you have to do is give us a call.
While plums are not necessarily considered a quintessential summer fruit, they do quite well in our climate. Additionally, they will do just fine with one tree as they are self pollinators as well.
