Trees that lose their leaves are beautiful when they change colors in the fall, but it can be a pain to get rid of all of the leaves in your yard. Not to mention the creepy 'Snow White woods' vibe they give in the winter when the tree is just branches. Evergreen trees are a great option because they provide year-round beauty and are pretty easy to maintain. Plus, you can trim some of them into fun shapes if you're feeling creative! Fast Growing Trees put together this guide, Evergreen Trees: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know, with literally everything you ever wanted to know about different types of evergreens and how to care for them in your own yard.
Evergreen trees are perfect for planting as privacy screens and wind breaks. And there are many different types of evergreens, from tiny dwarf shrubs to massive trees. Evergreens can add character to your yard, offer year-round foliage, and will enhance your landscape for years to come.
Why Evergreens? For starters, Evergreen trees have foliage year-round. The term evergreen means that trees will keep growing leaves as other leaves fall off. For that reason, most people think of pines and Christmas trees when they think of the word Evergreen. However, any tree that keeps its green foliage year-round, enduring the cold weather and dry seasons or hot, humid temperatures, is an Evergreen.
And needless to say, there are a ton of options! But our guide explains how to choose the right Evergreen trees for your yard.
