Red Maple Tree

Maple trees are a beautiful addition to any property, with mature maple trees displaying a stunning range of colors throughout the year.

If you are looking to create shade in your yard, the maple tree is ideal. They grow exceptionally quickly and produce long branches that cover large areas. In terms of maintenance, they are also relatively easy to care for. Once they reach maturity, maple trees will be able to cope with moist and wet soil and sub-zero temperatures.

Green Pillar Pin Oak Tree

If you live in a city like London Ontario or its surrounding suburbs, the green pillar pin oak tree is an ideal choice for your yard. This tree is extremely tolerant of pollution and will continue to flourish regardless of the pollution levels in its local environment.

Given its tall but narrow shape, this variation of the oak tree is an ideal privacy tree that, when planted alongside several others, will create a tall screen of privacy between you and your neighbors.

This tree should only be planted in direct sunlight with plenty of room to grow. On average, green pillar pins grow to be 50 feet tall and will tolerate a variety of soil conditions. It’s perfect if you are looking for tall trees that enjoy moist, well-drained soil.

Japanese Lilac Tree

The Japanese lilac tree is one of the most popular trees in Ontario and for good reason. Not only does it produce beautiful colors, but it is low maintenance and tolerant to pests and various diseases.

The other trees listed here all serve as the foundations of your yard, but this tree is the perfect accent plant to introduce color and vibrancy into your outdoor space. From late spring into early summer, the Japanese lilac tree will produce amazing flower blooms that carry a light, welcoming scent.

These trees grow at a medium rate and, while they can grow to between 15-25 feet tall, their size can be controlled with regular pruning.

Tulip Tree

Also known as a tulip poplar and tulip magnolia, these trees are perfect for yards in Southern Ontario. It is one of the most popular fast-growing native trees in Canada that will attract countless different types of birds into your backyard.

It is a popular choice due to the buttery yellow cup-shaped flowers it produces throughout spring. Much like the Japanese lilac tree, it will introduce vibrant colors and variety into your backyard. The tulip tree is a deciduous tree, but even after it has bloomed and lost its leaves, its furrowed gray bark remains a beautiful addition to any landscape.
