Which Trees Are Best for Your Landscape?

Whether enhancing your home or business, a few key factors determine which trees are ideally suited for your property.

Which Trees Are Ideal for Planting in Marin County, CA?

Arborists utilize the USDA’s Plant Hardiness Zone Map to assess which species will flourish in the native climatic conditions of a particular area. The map takes into account elements such as the seasonal temperatures and rainfall each year to indicate the regions where a plant can thrive. 

It’s crucial to choose a tree that aligns with your local hardiness zone. Some trees in the hardiness zone for Marin County are:

  • Valley Oak (Quercus lobata): Native to California, the Valley Oak grows up to 50’ tall and 70’ wide. This tree grows slowly in full sun, and requires little water once established. Best for no-scape landscaping, away from lawns or irrigated areas, with plenty of room to grow.
  • Redbud (Cercis occidentalis ‘Forest Pansy’): This beauty is best recognized by its breathtaking pink-purple flowers that adorn bare branches in early spring, followed by the emergence of deep burgundy leaves that remain vibrant all season long. The Redbud grows slowly to 20’ tall and 15’ wide, and flowers best in full sun. Tolerates low water, but extra will promote faster growth. Not particular regarding soil type, as long as it has proper drainage.
  • Vine maple (Acer circinatum): Native to California, this is our regional equivalent of the Japanese Maple. Growing to a height and width of about 20’, this tree grows rapidly in its youth and then slows into maturity. Versatile in that it thrives in both full sun or shade, this tree is coveted for its aggressive root growth retaining soil along stream banks. Likes water, but is drought resistant once established.
  • Crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei ‘Natchez’): This tree is best known for its cinnamon-colored bark, late summer blooms, and leaves that turn beautiful fall shades. A great choice for patio coverage, it grows 20’ tall and wide, and prefers full sun and low water.
