What are some good tall trees for my yard?

Choosing Tall Trees for the Yard

While small trees can save space in the yard, sometimes you need a few tall trees to help anchor the house to the ground. Some excellent choices are black walnut, Colorado blue spruce, white pine, pin oak and hickory trees. To grow these tall trees successfully, you should:

1. Look for a location where the tree will not overshadow sun loving plants.

2. Be sure that you don't plant trees with weak root systems in areas that have high winds.

3. Be careful not to plant trees too close to your house.
