Awesome Trees to Grow in Your Backyard
Growing a tree in your backyard can add beauty to your property, improve air quality, and provide shade. Not only that but trees are great for the environment! There are many different species of trees you could choose from – some good choices include oaks, cedars, junipers, pines.
Everyone’s first choice for a backyard tree is is the Oak. It’s a beautiful tree with distinctive leaf shape and it is tolerant of many different soil conditions. A well-established oak will grow up to 20 feet in height, but can also be grown as a hedge or even as ground cover!
Cedars are another popular choice for backyard trees because they grow quickly and have dense foliage that provides great shade. One downside though – cedar pollen bothers some people in high concentrations so if you’re one of them, this may not be your best fit! The juniper is an evergreen which can provide privacy screens from neighbors on either side while at the same time providing good wind protection too.
A pine would make a great choice for someone who wants something soft to touch and with a pleasant shade of evergreen leaves saved. Pines are also fairly drought resistant and can be grown as a decorative bush that’s less than three feet in height!
The mulberry tree is another fantastic choice for your backyard because it tolerates most soil conditions, including those with poor drainage. It also handles city smog well so if you live in an urban area or have lots of air pollution from factories nearby this may be the perfect solution to help filter out some of that dirtiness!
And finally, our last suggestion – the weeping willow. This type of tree has lovely drooping branches which provide great shade all summer long while at the same time offering wonderful privacy screens too.
