The Best Trees for Planting in Ohio
Ohio lies in the humid continental zone which means it has a generally mild climate. Winters can be very cold and summers are relatively mild in the eastern highlands. The southern regions have warmer temperatures and a longer growing season.
Fast growing trees for colder climate zones are easy to find at the fast Growing Tree Nursery. Hardy favorites are the Lombardy and Hybrid Poplar, which make great windbreakers, the colorful Quaking Aspen and our range of red Maples. If you want a tree that is great for planting in rows to form a staunch windbreaker or to increase privacy, check out our Juniper ‘Wichita Blue’. This unusual plant has year round blue-grey foliage and makes a great hedgerow plant.
Our range of fast growing evergreens offer privacy, protection from harsh winds and provide a beautiful solution for marking property boundaries. Choose from Thuja Emerald Green or American Holly. These hardy evergreens will soon form a living wall to protect and enhance your residential property.
If you want to add a splash of color, our robust snowball bush will provide huge clusters of creamy-white flowers from early summer and the Purple Lilac is another colorful hedge option. If you live in Ohio’s warmer regions, you can also plant any of our Crape Myrtles and Azaleas.
