- Chinese Pistache
If you’re looking for a nice, shady tree to relax underneath on a hot Texas day, you simply can’t go wrong with the Chinese pistache. This tree species is one of the best trees for shade in Denton, Texas.
The Chinese pistache is a medium-sized shade tree that homeowners and commercial property owners love because it’s easy to maintain. It also grows very well in the slightly acidic soils we have right here in Denton.
With a good growth rate, this long-lived species grows an average of 2 to 3 feet per year. It can grow to be as much as 40 to 50 feet tall at maturity, and 30 feet wide.
The Chinese pistache is also an aesthetically appealing tree. Its green leaves turn orange, red, and even crimson during the fall, making its fall foliage quite the sight to see and enjoy.
- Lace Bark Elm
This tree – which is native to China, Japan, and Korea – thrives in Denton because it is drought-tolerant and grows well in our alkaline soils. Despite being non-native, it’s a common tree in our area. The lace bark elm is distinguished by its broad, vase-shaped crown, green leaves, graceful and drooping branchlets, and bark that, in mature lace bark elms, begins to display patches of colored bark in various shades such as brown, gray, orange, and green.
- Post Oak Tree
The post oak tree is a beautiful oak tree, making it a great choice for your Denton property. This deciduous oak tree (meaning it loses its leaves in the fall and winter) can grow to be 40 to 50 feet tall. Its leaves vary between growing to 3 to 5 inches long, and sometimes even longer.
The post oak tree grows acorns that average about ¾ inches in length. They often fall from the tree’s branches and are eaten by local wildlife, making the post oak tree a great tree for landscapes with lots of space.
- Red Oak Tree
Red oak trees are great for Denton because they grow well in our slightly acidic soil. They are also very tolerant to heat – and we all know that is here in Texas – and they require very little water, too.
Like post oak trees, red oaks trees are deciduous trees. At maturity they reach a medium size, averaging a highlight of around 75 feet tall. They have an average width of about 60 feet. Red oaks grow acorns, which fall to the ground and are often eaten by local wildlife.
- Yaupon Holly Tree
The yaupon holly tree is one of our favorite evergreen trees for Denton. Native to Texas, it can grow in virtually any type of soil and sun or shade condition. It’s also drought-tolerant.
The yaupon holly tree can grow to be between 15 to 25 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide. In the spring it booms inconspicuous white flowers. Its leaves are small, ovate, and green.
While this tree is susceptible to pest infestations, that’s not a reason to forgo it altogether. As ISA Certified Arborists, our team is able to provide environmentally responsible insect control to manage pest infestations in any tree species, including the yaupon holly tree.
