The Best Trees to Consider Planting In Your Yard For Spring

Are you looking to spruce up your yard this spring? Some beautiful foliage can make all the difference in your landscaping, both functionally and in attractiveness. Trees add beauty, privacy, and shade to your property, and now that spring is in full swing, it’s the perfect time to get planting.

Here are some of the best trees to plant in your yard this spring season: 


Boxelder trees are a great option to plant on your property this spring. They grow very quickly, are tough, don’t require much maintenance, and reach up to 40 feet in height. In early spring, the foliage has a bright yellow color that changes to chartreuse as the season progresses.  

Paperbark maple

There are so many great maple trees to choose from, but paperbarks should definitely be at the top of your list. It has copper-colored peeling bark that is sure to catch your eye all year round and beautiful scarlet-colored foliage. Paperbark maples grow to be up to 25 feet tall and 20 feet wide, providing lots of shade and beauty to your yard.  

Flowering Crabapple

If you’re looking for a tree that is sure to add a bright pop of color to your property, flowering crabapples may be just what you need. Crabapple trees come in various shapes, including columnar and umbrella but generally grow between 10 and 20 feet tall. As well, they come in a range of colors such as white, yellow, orange, red, and pink.

Red Oak

If you’ve got the space and want to go big, try a red oak tree; it’s America’s national tree! This iconic tree has a mythological past and has been used to represent strength, boldness, and endurance. Red oaks are favored by many landscapers when choosing oaks because they grow very quickly, they’re wide and provide lots of shade, they grow up to 75 feet tall, and have a beautiful bright red and orange color you’re sure to love.
