Today we want to share with you a special post:

Best Small Trees for Privacy and Shade

Trees come in all sizes, from stately oaks to small fruit trees that you can grow in your yard.

And if you are looking for something perfect for a small garden, the options can seem endless. To choose the perfect species for your garden, first, measure exactly how much space you have.

A good rule of thumb is to plant a tree away from the house, at a distance equal to half the maximum height of the tree.

For a 6-meter tree (at maturity), plant no closer than 3 meters from the house. Tree roots can grow beyond the top of a tree, so some leeway is a great idea.

When selecting a tree for a small space, consider ornamental trees, which tend to grow more slowly, as well as trees that come in dwarf varieties.

Different species can satisfy different needs (shade, privacy, color) depending on the shape of the tree and its crown, not to mention the potential for maintenance.

Beautiful fall foliage can mean more cleanliness in your future, too!

These nine species, even to please the public, such as dogwood, crepe myrtle, and wild apple, harvested by landscapers offer the best in beauty, size, shade, privacy, and robustness.

Prairifire Crabapple

This deciduous tree develops deep pink flowers in the spring and small purplish fruits in the fall and winter for a year-round spectacle.

It is an excellent choice for nurturing and protecting wildlife, who love fruits that sweeten by freezing and thawing.

Grow as a single specimen in the front yard to decorate the sidewalk or use a pair to flank a doorway. Plant in a sunny spot with room for the tree to grow up to 20 feet tall and wide.

Japanese Stewartia

Do you need something a little shorter? This relative of the camellia provides low canopy coverage up to 3 meters high.

"I hope to have beautiful white flowers in the middle of summer and rich green foliage all season long," says Henriksen.

Camellia Japonica

The tree for a compact yard is the camellia, an evergreen tree that has beautiful, bright flowers and as a double-bloomer, brings year-round color to your landscape.

Theyโ€™re low maintenance and easy to prune. These white, pink, or red-flowered beauties typically grow up to 12 feet tallย and 10 feet wide.

Royal Star Magnolia

At 4.5 meters tall and wide, this variety tolerates hot and cold better than the average magnolia.

The huge, fragrant, bright white flowers bloom before the foliage appears in the spring, but a lush green background is expected afterward. Beautiful!

Ribbon-Leaf Japanese Maple

One of the best trees for a small space is the Japanese maple. The impressive foliage, the elegant shape, and the architecture of the branches in winter.

This particular variety features textured leaves that start red in the spring, turn tan in the summer, and then turn bright orange in the fall.

Full or partial sunspots in cooler climates and sunspots or afternoon sunspots in extremely hot areas work best.

Expect to see this obstacle grow to 3.6 meters tall and wide.

Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry

A popular choice in the South and Midwest, Brilliance fall fruit ripens 25 feet tall.

The white flowers, coppery red leaves, purplish fruits, and light gray bark make it the perfect plant for a standout or privacy screen for small patios.

The fruits taste similar to blueberries and you can use them in jellies, and cakes.

Zuni Crape Myrtle

Zuni is a small tree that is consumed by urban gardens. Use it as an accent or to cover up unattractive views.

The pink flowers bloom in late summer, but you can admire the multi-colored bark and greenery during the growing months.

A single log can grow up to 3.6 meters tall and wide in full sun, and you can plant more together for a larger canopy.

Black Diamond Crepe Myrtle

This variety of dwarf crepe myrtle is recommended for its vibrant flower and classic smooth bark. The deep black foliage makes the flowers stand out even more.

Each bush can grow up to 3.6 meters in height and 2.5 meters in width, with enough space and light; the best in full sun.

Venus Dogwood Tree

Dogwood trees produce large flower-shaped bracts each spring and red leaves and berries in the fall.

This particular cultivar is a vigorous selection with remarkable winter hardiness, good drought tolerance, and excellent resistance to disease.

This deciduous tree prefers partial sun to full sun and can grow up to 20 feet in height and width.
