3. Paperback Maple Tree

Just looking at this tree it’s hard not to imagine yourself basking in its shaded glory with your favorite book on a crisp fall afternoon. The Paperback Maple tree is known for its beauty as well as its durability. Long after all of the other trees have lost their leaves and bright color the Paperback Maple is just beginning to show its real beauty. We at The Wichita Tree service love this unique tree for its peeling bark when the bark starts to peel back on the trunk and branches you are privy to one of natures most interesting spectacles. The trunk beneath the peeling bark is a vibrant and distinct red-orange that is truly stunning. It’s easy to see yourself tucked cozily beneath this beautiful canopy with a warm blanket, a hot cup of coffee and of course that book.

4. Southern Red Oak Tree

Don’t let the name deceive you, this is not exclusively a southern tree. This hearty yet graceful specimen is in a class of its own when it comes to Oak trees and can be grown in as well as thrive in nearly any conditions. We encounter this alluring tree all over the great state of Kansans, and it’s honestly a sight to behold. Its owners will tell you if there were ever a tree to camp out under and spend the day lost in another world it would be the Southern red oak. Oaks have been known to live hundreds of years which just adds to their appeal. Imagine yourself reading a timeless classic like Jane Eyre, or Huckleberry Finn, under a vibrant southern oak tree. A day spent with this classic tree, and a classic book will take you back to a time where life was more simple, more tasteful, and much more peaceful.
