Top 9 Trees To Plant In Spring

No matter what the season, planting trees is the perfect way to give yourself an immediate visual upgrade for your property. It can also be a longer-term investment, as valuable mature trees will provide shade, support and oxygen for you and generations of people!

“Spring is here!” according to tree lopping Logan owner Lance Batchelor. And with spring comes the desire to plant things. Trees are a great choice because they offer so many benefits to you and your family. They provide shade, reduce noise pollution, improve air quality, increase property value and much more!

Be inspired with this list of the trees that are best planted during the spring season!

Cherry Tree

The cherry tree does well in partial sunlight, but can also thrive in full sun. It’s best to choose one that is compatible with your soil type (i.e., if it already thrives in your area). Make sure you give it water frequently (but do not drown it) and fertilize twice per year for best results!

Dogwood Tree

Another popular choice among gardeners is the dogwood tree. This adaptable tree works well in both small and large yards but requires at least six hours of sunlight each day. It can thrive in just about any type of soil, so it’s easy to plant! Make sure you only water the sapling once per week initially – after that, twice-weekly until fall.

Red Maple Tree

The red maple is quick growing (sometimes up to 4 feet per year) and works well as a shade option. They do need partial sun though; make sure they are where they will get at least 3 to 4 hours of sun per day. During the first year, give them a little water every couple of days and then decrease as they become more established.

River Birch

The river birch is another favourite among gardeners because it works well in partial sun and thrives in acidic soil (a common problem for those who live in highly polluted areas). This tree can grow up to 8 feet annually and requires only occasional watering – make sure you give it some during its first 3 years (up to 15 gallons each week), after that, it should be okay. 

Northern Red Oak Tree

The northern red oak tree is slightly different from most oaks because it is more of a large shrub. This makes it a perfect option for smaller yards. It does best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil – but can tolerate many different types of soil. Be sure to water frequently the first year, then decrease the water level as it becomes more established.

American Sweetgum Tree

The sweetgum tree is a beautiful option that provides both shade and fruit. It grows quickly, so make sure you have enough space for it! It does best in moist, acidic soil and partial sun. Water this often during the first year and then decrease as it becomes more established (but do not forget to water it from time to time!).

Japanese Maple Tree

This delicate tree is perfect for areas with limited space and does not require a lot of maintenance. It does well in full sun and thrives in moist, well-drained soil. Water this frequently the first year and then decrease as it becomes more established (but make sure to water it from time to time!).

Blue Spruce

The blue spruce tree provides beautiful colours to any home or garden! It is a good idea to choose one with low water needs, you may need to water it every day when it is small, but reduce watering once it gets larger. Planting only a few feet from your home is essential for this type of tree because they grow very quickly – make sure there is enough space for them to grow!

Cypress Tree

The cypress tree is a great option for those who live in high-water areas. It does well in full sun or partial shade and grows quickly! Be sure to water it frequently the first year, as you can lessen the interval of watering the plant as it becomes more established.

Hopefully, you enjoyed this list of the top trees that are best planted during the spring season. Be sure to choose wisely – your new tree will bring beauty, shade and so much more to your home or garden for years to come!
