The 7 Best Shade Trees Any One Can Grow
Seven of the best shade trees that thrive in most of the US. These easy to grow trees can be providing shade in just a few years helping to reduce energy costs and adding cool, protected space for sitting and enjoying the yard area.
Homeowners moving into new construction have an advantage being able to landscape with a clean palette, though any homeowner can strategically plant one or two shade trees. Plant shade trees on the southern to southwestern location of the house going out about half of the expected mature height of the tree. Spacing out from the house allows plenty of area for the extensive root growth for these taller, fast growing trees. Thought should be put into selecting the best shade tree for your landscape to prevent regrets years later.
"Planting Shade Trees is one of fall's best yard projects," notes Cheryl Jones, President of Greenwood Nursery. "While many tall growing trees work well for shade, based on fast growth and long life span, our customers favorite shade trees are Tulip Poplar, River Birch, Northern Red Oak, Ginkgo, Dawn Redwood, Bald Cypress, Red Sunset Maple and Thuja Green Giant." Jones adds, "Once planted, most trees will be providing shade within the following 3 to 5 years."
