shade trees that do well in shade???
I really hope you will help me with this decision! I do not know much about shade trees. I want to plant trees around the house, sides (sides east and west) front (south). I live in N. MS and the summers are so hot, I want to shade the house as much as possible.
I need one medium to large tree in the front (south). There are some large trees on the west side that shade part of the front yard, the rest is sunnier. As you move east toward the driveway you get full sun. What shade tree would do well in these conditions?! I want to shade, need to shade, the front of the house so we don't roast in summer.
Moving around to the east side, I've got partial shade. I think too much sun for dogwoods, but I'm not sure! Probably. What small to medium trees would do well here?
Please help me with this. My husband and I want to enjoy our property. I don't want to make the wrong decision and waste time, effort, and money.
Thank you so very much for your much needed expertise and advice!
