Selecting trees and shrubs for your landscape

Keeping trees and shrubs healthy

Hiring a tree care professional - Finding and hiring a professional arborist or forester can help you diagnose problems and get professional care for your landscape trees.

Deciduous trees and shrubs

Deciduous trees and shrubs lose their leaves in the fall and can provide color, texture and interest to your yard.

 | 

Evergreen trees and shrubs

Evergreens keep their leaves or needles throughout the year and can act as windbreaks and provide shelter for animals.

Evergreens can be conifers (cone-bearing, needle-like foliage) such as pine, spruce, juniper or arborvitae. They can also be broadleaf (leaf-like foliage) such as boxwood and rhododendron.
