Summer Trees

Can anything stand up to this heat? You can barely handle it, so how can a plant that is dependent on the right combination of nutrients going to thrive? If you don’t want your yard to be filled with cacti this summer, then consider planting a few of these trees which can give you the shade and vibrant yard you crave.

Cotoneaster

This plant is a great choice because it’s pretty, comes in a lot of varieties of shapes and sizes and it loves the sun. This is a great option for those who want a low maintenance shrub or tree that adds personality to their property. Plant in the fall for best results, but spring is also an option. Basic pruning will keep them healthy and attractive as they can get out of control without upkeep

Chinkapin (Chinquapin) Oak

This oak tree does not appreciate the shade, but does manage to provide an awful lot of it. It’s not a small tree, but if you have the room, it can be an extremely beautiful addition to your yard. You’ll have the best results if you plant it right at the start of spring, and it will need at least 6 hours of sun a day to get the best effects.

Hackberry

You can plant this tree in the early spring if you have the space. It also serves as an excellent source of food for wildlife.
