The Q&A Archives: Indentifying a tree

Question: I found a tree that I like but don't know what it is called. Where should I go to get help to find out the type of tree it is so I can purchase one.

Answer: If you have access to the tree, take a couple of leaves and put them in a plastic baggie and take them to your local nursery. Helpful folks there can probably identify it for you. If you don't have access to the tree, take a few photos, including close ups of the trunk and the leaves. Then take the photos to your nursery. Best wishes with your project!
