Rick’s Recommended Tree List

There are plenty of trees in the DFW area. Shade trees, ornamental trees and understory trees. They grow large, wide, small and tall. The large trees are shade trees, the medium size trees are ornamental trees and the small trees are understory trees that grow underneath other trees. Some require wet situations like a Sycamore. Other species prefer dry sites like a Sumac. Clearly there is a tree for any condition your yard may be in. Knowing which species to plant, what ails them, and how to take care of them is up to us, the Certified Arborists (Tree Doctor).
