About Arbor Hill Tree Farm
Arbor Hill Tree Farm is a small, family farm, owned and operated by Jerry and Lisa Knutson in Cottage Grove, MN. We currently have 37 acres of trees in production, consisting of shade trees and evergreens at 3 locations. Our goal is to provide a quality tree at a competitive price, to local residents, businesses, landscape contractors, as well as wholesale customers. We are also committed to providing useful information to customers during all stages of planning, installation, and maintenance and care of trees.
Do not over water. More trees die from over watering than under watering. Always pull back mulch and check moisture content in soil before watering. Consult Arbor Hill Tree Farm for recommendations on your specific site.
Mulch also reduces weed growth around trees and prevents damage from lawn mowers and weed whips. As mulch decomposes, it adds valuable nutrients to the soil.
a 4-6" deep layer of mulch out about 1 ft. past the tree's
canopy. Keep the mulch back from the tree stem about 4". Mulch
that is right up against the trunk keeps the root collar wet and
may encourage mice to nibble trunk.
