Many homeowners want to plant a tree in their yard, but they don't know the first thing about what kind of trees grow best where.

Not only do you need to find out what trees will grow well in your area, but you also need to make sure that the species will provide enough shade or color for your needs.

Red Maple trees are an excellent choice for any region because they are fast-growing and have beautiful fall colors.

Red maple trees can be used as single specimen trees or planted in groups with other red maples. They work well on hillsides and along roadsides because of their ability to thrive in full sun conditions. The leaves turn shades of yellow-orange before falling off during the autumn months, which is a nice seasonal change from evergreens such as pines and firs that hold onto their needles all winter long. They are hardy in zones 4-8 and are deciduous trees.

Sugar Maple trees are among the most popular trees for homeowners, and these beauties have orange and yellow fall foliage.

Sugar maple trees offer a beautiful fall color display, and they're also known to be some of the best shade trees available. However, there is more to sugar maple than meets the eye. They are used in heavy maple syrup production, live for almost a century, are a low maintenance tree, and reach heights near seventy feet at maturity. Hardy in planting zones 4-10 makes them adaptable to most areas and deciduous.

Red sunset maple trees grow to 70 feet; they have gorgeous fall colors and can be planted in full sun or partial shade.

The red sunset maple is the perfect tree for any yard! It's also an excellent choice for anyone who wants a beautiful shade tree that will provide lots of cool breeze and relief from the summer heat and is also easy to plant and maintain, so you won't spend all your time caring for it year after year. These trees are hardy in zones 3-8 and can withstand drought well and give you the most deeper hues of color than all other maple trees—the leaves in Autumn range from deep red to burgundy.
