In this Livingetc article, Lou Meyer, business developer for Davey's mid-Atlantic region, shares which trees homeowners should choose if they want fall colors in their lawn.
Adding one or two trees to your yard with leaves in shades of crimson, gold, russet or burgundy is a wonderful way to introduce vibrant color, ornamental detail and structure. The color palette of beautiful reds, yellows, oranges and purples synonymous with fall is always an uplifting sight and never more so than when the trees are planted in your own yard so you can admire them up close.
The good news is that even if your backyard or outdoor space is a little on the small side there are still plenty of options to choose from that will work. There are also vibrant color changing fall trees for every region whatever your hardiness zone. Just remember that the intensity of leaf color is determined by factors such as soil, variations in temperature, and how much sunlight your tree is exposed to, so be sure to check out possible scenarios before you buy.
You'll want a variety with standout factor, in which case pick one from our list of expert suggestions for the best trees with fall color, and those bold and beautiful good looks will certainly get noticed.
