Kansas residents love their Sunflower State residential landscapes. They often come to us when they are looking for fast-growing trees that will quickly provide them with cooling shade for their house and garden during the summertime. Which trees you choose to plant in Kansas will depend on where you live – the Dissected Till Plains, the Southeastern Plains and the Great Plains - and the benefits you expect from the tree.
The Best Trees for Planting in Kansas
Good considerations for tree choices for Kansans will always include species that are highly adaptable to the unique climate of the varied hardiness zones; trees that can thrive in zones 5 and 6 and can handle the highly changeable continental climate.
We know you want fast-growing trees that are hardy without compromising beauty, which is why we can offer the lively flowering Dogwood, the robust Hybrid Poplar, the Summer Red Maple with its blaze of glorious color or subtle Autumn Purple Ash Trees.
