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.
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-gray foliage and makes a great hedgerow plant.
If you want to add a splash of color, our robust Snowball Bush will provide huge clusters of creamy-white flowers from early summer. If you live in Ohio’s warmer regions, you can also plant any of our Crape Myrtles and Azaleas.
