wright-three-great-shade-treesWhen it comes to shade, not all trees are created equal. After all, the list of things you want from your shade tree can be quite specific, and those specifics can vary depending where you plant the tree, the climate you live in and how quickly you need the tree to grow. Fortunately, the University of Missouri Extension has a great list of shade trees that runs the gamut from large to small, providing a great resource for home gardeners and landscapers alike.

Here are three of our favorites, chosen mostly for their versatility and aesthetic appeal:

Green Ash
The green ash grows quickly and has a maximum height of up to 60 feet. It’s versatile in many types of soil and weather conditions, and has a good resistance to disease. The one downside is that insects, especially ones that bore, are quite fond of the green ash, especially when it’s young. Consider the Marshall’s seedless variety to eliminate the concerns about the green ash seeds in your garden.

Honey Locust
If you choose the right variety of honey locust tree, you’ll find that they provide enormous benefits to a landscape. They grow very quickly (up to 80 feet), thrive in a variety of climates and require very little raking in the fall. Make sure that you get the podless, thornless varieties to avoid some of the problems that are often associated with other honey locust varieties. Like the green ash, these trees can be host to insects.

Amur Maple
The Amur maple grows to 20 feet, though it takes it some time to reach its maximum height. It’s a beautiful tree, especially in the fall and the winter, since it holds on to seeds even after the leaves have fallen. It isn’t particularly susceptible to bugs or disease and will hold its own in many different climates.

Some other great shade trees include the bald cypress, English oak, Ginkgo and Japanese pagoda. You have so many options when choosing the perfect shade tree, so be sure to know what criteria you want the tree to meet when searching through all of the varieties. The right tree is out there, so be patient in your search.

While you’re preparing your spring planting, you might also want to think about adding a stand-on mower to your fleet. Our Stander ZK is the gold standard of standing mowers, and it’s proven to be a favorite of lawn care professionals everywhere. Now is a great time to take advantage of our seasonal buying program, so find a dealer in your area today to book a commercial mower demonstration.
