​Best Trees For Shade

Posted by Tammy Sons on

Many homeowners enjoy the shade and privacy that large trees may provide to them says Tammy Sons from Tn Nursery, a leading nursery supplier of all types of trees. It gives them a convenient way to stay cool during the summer. These trees can actually add value to a home, because there are many buyers after the same kind of amenities provided by shade trees. You will want to know which kind of trees are best for shading a large swath of your yard. It may take a bit of research to decide how to find some of these trees for sale in your area. This guide will help you get started, especially if you might be interested in finding an online plant nursery.

One thing to realize about shade trees is that they should likely be viewed as an investment in your yard. You will likely plant a relatively young tree into these areas, which will one day grow into impressive specimens. It will also take some careful planning to have a yard full of shade trees. This is because you won't want them to overcrowd one another. However, you will also want to have as much continuous shade as possible.

You may be wondering which species make the best shade trees. One option may be to plant maple trees, which are considered to be a classic shade tree species. This is because they are capable of growing quite tall and have a wide canopy. These trees also have broad leaves, which shade a fuller amount of area when they are all bunched together. Be aware that maple trees do shed their leaves in the fall, so you will have to do a little rake work with them. A couple other reliable shade trees include the beech and honey locust varieties.

You may want to be careful how close you plant the trees to your home. It is true that shade from trees can dramatically reduce the cost of cooling your home during the summer. But you also don't want large limbs falling from the tree and damaging your roof. If you do have large trees near your house, you may want to spend some time trimming back the branches.

Think about the type of trees for sale you might want to buy. You can find pictures of tree species on the internet. This can give you a clue for what you may want to buy from an online plant nursery.
