10 Trees Landscape Designers Love

In honor of Arbor Day, consider adding a beautiful and beneficial tree species favored by designers around the country.

Consider how beneficial planting a tree can be. Trees shade and cool our homes and streets, helping to mitigate the heat island effect and reduce reliance on air conditioning and other energy consumers. Trees also provide food and habitat to wildlife, capture carbon dioxide from the air, provide natural play areas, enhance curb appeal and add beauty and a feeling of place to gardens and communities.

For Arbor Day, April 26, we asked landscape designers and architects from around the country to share tree species they like to include in their designs. The results include flowering native species and ancient ornamentals, slow-growing specimen trees and quicker screening solutions. And all of them provide distinct design solutions and environmental benefits.
