The Best Trees for Planting in New Jersey
The Garden State enjoys a moderate climate with chill winters and warm, humid summers. The northwestern hills experience colder winter and slightly milder summer temperatures than the state’s other regions. The average January temperature throughout the state is 37 degrees Fahrenheit and the average temperature in July is 73 degrees. This puts the state in plant hardiness zones 6 and 7. This is an important factor to consider when you are choosing trees and shrubs. Here at the Fast Growing Tree Nursery, we have a range of trees that are perfectly acclimatized to these zones.
We know you want fast growing trees that hardy, and are perhaps even native to the Old Garden State such as the White Dogwood. For shade from that NJ summer sun, we suggest the American Beech, American Elm, or one of our many Maples.
If you’re looking to plant a row of evergreens, try our American Holly, another tree that is at home in New Jersey, or the Thuja Giant or Leyland Cypress. They all grow quickly to form a uniform, living green wall. Unlike other trees that fall prone to almost any disease, these evergreens are adaptable and easy to grow.
The best feature of your Garden State landscape just might be flowering trees like the Kwanzan flowering cherry tree. This tree grows well in NJ and offers you a spring flowering tree that is large enough to also be a shade tree. Some of the best trees for your landscape will be found at Fast Growing Trees Nursery.
For New Jersey fruit lovers, you can create your own personal orchard with our Key Lime trees, Bartlett Pear, Santa Rosa Plum and Navel Oranges. The juicy North Star Cherries are also perfect for cooler regions.
New Jersey’s state tree is the Northern Red Oak. Also known as the Champion Oak, this tree grows straight and tall and in full maturity reaches heights of 90 feet. In exceptional circumstances, it may even reach 140 feet. It has a narrow-topped head and thrives in many soil types.
