Texas lies within the warm and cool areas of the Temperate Zone of the Northern Hemisphere. This gives the Lone Star State three major climatic types; Continental, Mountain, and Modified Marine. Though no distinct boundaries separate these climate types, as a guideline the Continental zone is predominant in the High Plains. The Mountain climate dominates the Guadalupe, Davis and Chisos Mountains, and the Modified Marine climate covers the rest of the state. Climate will be a major consideration when you are selecting fast growing trees for your Texas residential landscape. Whichever region of Texas you call home, we have the trees for you.
