We know just the right trees to add that pop of color you’re looking for! Here is some more information about fall foliage trees including the ones you want and the ones you should stay away from.
When you want to improve the fall color in your yard it doesn’t hurt to start with a top of the line shade tree that offers beautiful reds and yellows; the beautiful maple. This includes Japanese maple, red maple and sugar maple among others. But you’ll want to supplement the color from your maples with the color provided by other good fall foliage trees. Oak trees can be useful for extending the fall foliage season because long after the maples have dropped their leaves, oaks will still be offering color.
Some other trees that can offer great fall foliage include the black tupelo, Eastern black walnut, Black gum, flowering dogwood, magnolias, Pignut hickory and more. And, evergreen trees offer year round beauty of course!
Not all trees add good color to your landscape and some that do should be avoided for other reasons. For example catalpa trees can be a delight other times of the year but in the fall their leaves turn black. It is also important to avoid any invasive species of trees. Our landscape company knows what kinds of trees these are and will never plant them in your yard.
