Thursday is always our weekly “tip” day and we couldn’t have timed it better. With the hottest temps of the season on their way-tomorrow is June so what did you expect-shade will be at a premium. As the saying goes you’re already 20 years too late to plant a tree, the next best time is today, however. Fortunate for us we have a long growing season and some very nice trees that grow fast! In fact for many trees it is “false” economy to pay for very large sizes as they only gain you a year or two in growth for hundreds of extra dollars.
Suggestions for heat tolerant and fast growth are: Southern Live Oak (not as fast as some but fast enought),Chinese Elm,Mesquite,Palo Verde,Sissoo,and African Sumac. Everyone has their favorite and there is no “perfect” tree -there certainly is no “clean” tree so get over it!
Both APS and SRP state that one of the most effective ways to cut cooling costs is to shade your home,especially windows, with trees and or shrubs! If you didn’t do it 25 years ago, then we expect we’ll see you today-this weekend for sure!!
