Choosing the Right Evergreen Tree
First, you need to know what type of soil is in your yard. You also need to know how much sunlight the area gets and consider what trees are already growing in the yard.
Popular Evergreen Trees
Not sure what to get? There are many types of evergreens to choose from, including pines, firs, spruces and more - all with different features to suit every type of yard.
Pine and spruce trees can grow to be quite tall and will spread to about their height. Yew trees will do well in shade while other evergreen trees do not. Juniper and arborvitae trees will do well in nearly any condition.
Our experts will help you choose trees that will thrive and provide years of enjoyment.
Evergreen Trees Offer Benefits
Erosion & Soil Protection
A stand of evergreen trees planted along the side of a river or next to a hill can help to prevent erosion by allowing sediment to accumulate on their roots. This will help them to grow strong and deep, while also stabilizing the soil on slopes making it safer for your home, gardens, roadsides and more.
The shade from an evergreen tree will help provide shade to your home, saving on cooling costs in the summer months. Planting trees on the South and West side of the house is best to assist with the cooling costs.
