Father’s Day is coming very soon. The whole world is flocking to the nearest store, frantically searching for the best gift for their favorite man. As a tree-planting initiative, Tenere is here with the best trees for our dads to plant on this Father’s Day. This Father’s Day tree gift can even earn extra brownie points for the gardening bubbas.
In the American tree language, the oak tree is seen as a sign of strength, morale, resilience, and knowledge. This reason is why the oak tree makes a great Father’s Day tree planting gift. After all, it embodies our bubbas’ strength, morale, and knowledge.
The oak tree, known for its majestic grandeur and gnarled branches, is one of the most popular trees in the United States. Because of their popularity and slow but steady growth rate, oaks are generally considered a great tree to plant in honor of someone.
Rio Red Grapefruit Tree
Who doesn’t enjoy a few fresh grapefruits to start their day? Bonus points if they came straight from your bubba’s garden, because convenient organic food is always welcome. These year-round fragrant flowers and fresh grapefruits make for an ideal Father’s Day tree planting gift.
The ‘Red Rio’ cultivar was engineered specifically to be resilient and fast-growing. With rich, pink-red flesh hiding behind yellow skin, this lovely evergreen tree will provide a Mediterranean touch to your bubba’s terrace or patio in the summer. Simply plant it in a bright, sunny location and water it when the soil becomes dry.
Pink Lady Apple Tree
The apple tree was revered in ancient times, representing good health and future happiness. Apple trees, with their rich-red exterior and luscious crunchy flesh, are one of the most popular fruit trees in the US. The unique sweet and sour combo of flavors makes apple trees a popular fruit tree.
The Pink Lady Apple Tree’s huge harvest of fruit will keep for three months, giving your bubba a consistent supply for eating and baking right up to Christmas. He can produce apple sauce from his own yard—how awesome!
In tree symbolism, the Japanese Paperbush represents strength and endurance in the face of hardship. It is a unique tree to plant this Father’s Day, having only been available in North America for roughly 15 years. This deciduous shrub can reach around 7 feet in height. Adorned with big flower buds and silvery hairs, this tree is breathtakingly appealing in the winter.
As winter fades, the flower buds bloom into clusters of white and yellow tubular flowers. They even emit a wonderful scent around the garden. These flower clusters pack quite a visual punch: the flower clusters on the bare branches are just magnificent, each one ivory white and topped with a vivid splash of yellow.
When it comes to arboreal gifts, the Japanese Maples reign as the most gift-worthy. Balance, love, longevity, and plenty are all qualities represented by the Japanese Maple. Not to mention, their rarity makes them an ideal gift for your gardening bubba or his garden.
Each maple species has its own distinct characteristics; some are tiny, others cascading. But all are red during the summertime, and depending on the species, their magnificent canopy hues can range from orange to purple.
Popular options include the Fernleaf Full Moon Maple and the Butterfly Japanese Maple. The Fernleaf Full Moon Maple has broad, rufescent leaves. The Butterfly Japanese Maple, however, changes through multiple red hues while bordered by a white rear.
Red Star White Cypress
The Red Star White Cypress is a rare tree in the US, making it an excellent gift for eco-conscious bubbas. These trees either grow into upright, thick shrubs or small trees. They also have blue-green foliage in the spring and summer, which turns into a shade of rich purple in the winter.
Cypress trees are evergreens, symbolic of everlasting life. This low-maintenance tree grows well in typical garden soil, flourishing in rainy areas. A sunny spot is ideal, but otherwise, this is a carefree plant that requires little more than a sip of water during drought seasons.
