Privacy Tree

"Before & After" Photo Gallery


Before & After



Our Snohomish River growing fields with thousands of privacy trees.  A real tree farm, close in.

Almost all of the trees in these photos came from here.





Emerald Green Arborvitae


Before & After

A line of Emerald Green Arborvitae can make a real difference from the start.  "Instant Privacy".





"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."  Sarah, Sammamish


These 6' Emerald Green Arborvitae trees make an immediate impact, which will only improve over time.







These Arborvitae have been trimmed both on top and on the sides.

Most homeowners don't go to this effort.


"Of all the people who worked on our new home, you were the only ones

        who showed up on time and did exactly what you said you were going to do."

                                                                          —Brett, Renton Highlands




“Rescue me from the neighbors from Hell.”  People too numerous to mention





Emerald Green Arborvitae we installed for the

American Classic Home development in Renton.



Arborvitae screening off a street from an apartment building in Tacoma.  The rockery is the street side. 

This was a high-wind area that required staking & wiring to assure uniform and straight growth.

t looks wonderful again!!!!  It really has been a pleasure to do business with you and your company. 

If you ever need a reference, I would be more than happy to tell potential clients what fine quality trees and service you give. 

Thanks again and I will see that they are watered.  Lesley, Alameda West Apartments, Tacoma





Even smaller Arborvitae spaced wider can make an impact, which will only improve over time.



“We don’t have to look at the bare naked neighbors anymore.”  Bill, Bothell


Thanks. You are an easy company to deal with.  A. Bellingham


I love you guy's.   M., Monroe










My biggest wish was for tall trees and they have met and exceeded my expectations. Tomorrow morning when we pull our shades and have our morning coffee in bed, we won't feel like the neighbors above us are peering in at us. Not that they would, but it always bothers me to look up at all those windows in the houses up above us.  You have a great crew and we love the trees.

Thanks again,

Dan, Mercer Island

Excelsa Cedar

Before & After





Excelsa Cedar "Before" & "After" photo, with 9-10' Excelsa Cedar on 5' centers (right photo) replacing the poor-looking arborvitae. 

This house was for sale and purchasers were turned off by the view of the campers.  The Excelsas screened most of the campers and showed that all a

purchaser would have to do is wait and that view would be gone.  We work a lot with people selling properties. 

One Agent told us that 50% of listings have privacy issues.




Screening we installed along 1000' of a prison boundary.  Excelsa Cedar on the left/middle, Leyland Cypress on the right.


"Before & After"  Smaller Excelsa Cedar

We purchased a row of Excelsa Cedar trees from you in 2004. The trees are beautiful and provide us with the privacy we intended.   Jim, Olympia



 "Before & After"

Screening off a road is a very common use of Privacy Trees; here Excelsa Cedar



The lot next door sold and there are plans for a large building,

so the homeowners acted "pro-actively" by installing Excelsa Cedar,

which will grow tall enough to block whatever is built over there.








An elementary school was being built next door and the Customer wanted

substantial screening right away.  Excelsa Cedars accomplished that.

I have had several work crews here at the house, but none
so thoughtful and professional as yours.

Angela, Seattle



I appreciate the way you conduct business - it is refreshing.
Insurance Agent, Mill Creek 



Leyland Cypress


10-12' Leyland Cypress we installed along 560' of a fish processing company. 

Within 3-4 years these trees will form a solid wall blocking the factory.

Hello. My trees are doing fantastic. I love them and they are filling in

and getting taller. Pretty soon no more Mr. Peepers.  S. Seattle



"Hedged" Leyland Cypress in our fields and Before & After project.



It looks so much different!  Kara, Redmond





With a major housing development going up next door, these Leyland Cypress were installed. 

They made an immediate impact and will only get better (wish we had a "before" photo).


"Plan Ahead"--trees grow!



Our License Plate says it all!

Green Giants



3 Green Giant projects that make an immediate impact that will only improve with time.



For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made.  Jeff, Seattle


Before & After & After & After

Very tricky screening project--screening a 3 story house on a hillside.





Emerald Towers



Schipka Laurel





Studies:  Trees Add Value to Property 




English Laurel


English Laurel is a good choice to block off these school bleachers.  Within a year or two this view will be totally different.



Dwarf-Leaf English Laurel



“You guys stock the best trees.”  Steve,  Black Diamond



Boxwood Hedge

Boxwood along driveway (with Thundercloud Plum in between)


Gold Rider Cypress



Gold Rider Cypress at our Snohomish tree farm.   "Hedged" trees in left photo; "Natural" in right photo.   We love the color they add to the landscape.



This "Helicopter Shot" is a great example of mature privacy screening.  "Emerald Green" arborvitae, interspersed with Redleaf Japanese Maple along the street; large cedars and firs along the driveway side; more cedars and firs at the back.  And an Amazing Maze of "Emerald Green" Arborvitae.

Redleaf Japanese Maple in Fall.  These trees change color all season and each is different.  



In 2010 our farm celebrated 100 years of farming!



      Two file photos of Thundercloud plums (center and right)--the first the early-Spring light purple, followed by the dark plum purple that it holds until the Fall.   On the left is a photo of one row of our Thundercloud Plums in the field.  10-12' tall, approx. 2" caliper.    We recently installed these in the parking strips of a neighborhood in Seattle.  Beautiful trees, and when you're buying from us you are buying from the grower.



Tree-Ski-Jumping in Norway.  The higher up you hit the tree, the higher your score. 

Do not try this at home.


Shade & Ornamental trees we planted at the beautiful

Campbell's Resort, Chelan, WA


Can you identify this tree?

(It isn't a tree at all; but ironically is logging roads and clear cutting in a forest.)





Beautiful Vine Maple colors.




Japanese Snowbell flowers.  These smell like a Hawaiian lei and so are great by a hot-tub, deck, window, etc.



Occasionally, a balloon lands on our property.

Studies:  Trees Add Value to Property





Privacy Trees:  We are a nursery tree farm specializing in Privacy Trees for screening.  We sell retail & wholesale, for residential and commercial projects and we "deliver & plant" our trees.  Our most common project is planting a line of privacy trees for a homeowner.  We have several thousand privacy trees growing at our Snohomish farm.  Plus we have many years' experience in "what works where", professional planting services, ongoing support, and thousands of satisfied customers.  Buying directly from a grower has great advantages--fresh trees, great selection, and low prices--you maximize your purchasing power.  We also have privacy trees that are not available elsewhere, such as our "Hedged Privacy Trees" and "Thin Man" Arborvitae.  You can see our hedged and natural privacy trees in our beautiful 8 minute YouTube Farm Video.

Ornamental Trees:  We also have a nice selection of Ornamental Trees, with many of our trees being on the "Great Plant Picks" list for the Pacific Northwest.

Delivery & Planting:  We usually deliver & plant our trees for Customers.  Click here for more information.

Free Estimates:  We will help you determine which trees are right for your project, and provide you with free, no-obligation estimates.  This is often accomplished by e-mail and phone, usually first using our online Free Estimate Request Form.  Where necessary, we will send one of our experts out to review the project (no cost or obligation).  More information

Location:  We’re conveniently located just 15 minutes north of Woodinville.  We are a farm, not a retail nursery so we don't keep regular retail hours; instead we set up appointments so that we can focus on your project.  So please set-up an appointment instead of "just coming out".  Here's a link to our "Directions" page.

Covid-19 Precautions:  In accordance with the Governor's directives we have made some changes in the way we do things.  For a detailed break-down of these steps please see our "Covid-19 Precautions" webpage.

Payment:  We don’t require any money “up front”—you only pay when the job is completed (unusual exceptions to this are large/special projects or lengthy “holds” on trees).  Be careful of contractors asking for “up front” money; they might not come back!

 Warranty & Support:  When we plant your trees we include staking (if necessary), transplanting fertilizer, and an easy-to-use watering system that hooks into your garden hose.  More information.  We also give a one year Warranty on trees we plant, for no additional charge.  More information   We have a detailed “Care of Your Trees” section of our website, and provide ongoing support--we're available to answer your questions as your new trees grow.  More information

 Customer Satisfaction:  Most important of all is what our customers think of us:

"I am really pleased with your work.  You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule.  You can quote me."                                                                          Jo, Vashon Island

"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity.  Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green.  We remark on them every day it seems.  Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer."                                                                                                                  Jim, Port Orchard

"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made."    Jeff, Seattle

"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with the trees.  The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!"                                                                Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here to see his project.  

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping.  Thanks again.”               Carol, Camano Island

"The [new] trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house!  We now have a much larger space we want to talk with you about . . "                                                                                   Katherine, Fall City

“My compliments to your crew.  We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in."                                                                                    Holly, Queen Anne

"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!”                                                                                                   Ryan, Buckley

"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are.  The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know.   Our yard is perfect!  We sit there and say "my oh my”!               Suzanne, Tacoma 

"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."                           Sarah, Sammamish
