The Best Trees for Planting in Zone 10

Other outstanding tropical tree choices will include specimens that are highly adaptable to tropical climate conditions, demonstrating drought-resistance as well as mildew, insect and disease resistance.

Look for types of trees that are fast growing, hardy, and are perhaps even native trees such as dogwood trees. For shade from that bright sun, we suggest oak trees, ash trees, or tulip poplar trees. You could even try our fastest growing shade trees, the Royal Empress Trees.

An excellent landscaping tree is the weeping willow, lovely when planted at water’s edge shade tree. Top it all off with flowering trees that grow well in Florida. You can find some of the best trees for Zone 10 with Fast Growing Trees Nursery.
