American Holly – Ilex Opaca
Large Evergreen Tree with delicate red berries and prickly leaves that stays green year round. It is also known as Ilex Opaca.
The great thing about this tree is the fact that it can be used for simple landscaping purposes. As long as the weather is nice in your area, then this is the type of tree that will thrive! This is a medium sized tree, which is why you can easily take a couple and plant them in your front or back yard. They will only reach about 30 meters tall. This makes a tree of this size very manageable and easy to take care of. When you are looking to grow trees you need to have enough space and the right environment. When a new tree is planted a new ecosystem has been created and new wildlife will start to settle in.
