What kind of trees to plant on your Backyard

  • Evergreen treesĀ are a great addition to any landscape. They provide year-round interest and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as providing shade, screening out unwanted views, or adding winter interest. Some popular evergreen trees include:
    • Pines: Pines are known for their long, slender needles and cones. They come in a variety of sizes, from small shrubs to large trees.
    • Spruces: Spruces have short, sharp needles and cones that hang down from the branches. They are often used for Christmas trees.
    • Firs: Firs have soft, flat needles and cones that grow in clusters. They are often used for Christmas trees and wreaths.

    Other popular evergreen trees include:

    • Cedars
    • Cypresses
    • Holly
    • Yew

    When choosing an evergreen tree, don’t forget the size of the tree, the climate you live in, and the purpose you want the tree to serve. Evergreen trees can be a great addition to any landscape, and they can provide year-round beauty and interest.

  • When choosing trees for your backyard, consider the following factors:

    • Size: Consider the size of your backyard and the mature size of the tree. You don’t want to plant a tree that will outgrow your yard.
    • Water needs: Choose trees that will be able to get the amount of water they need in your climate.
    • Climate:Ā Make sure to choose trees that are hardy in your climate zone.
    • Sun exposure: Some trees prefer full sun, while others prefer partial shade. Choose trees that will thrive in the amount of sun your backyard gets.
    • Maintenance: Choose trees that are low-maintenance if you don’t have a lot of time to spend on yard work.
