Choosing a tree is a little like falling in love.

So many marvelous trees are suitable for our Bay Area microclimates that trying to select the perfect one—or several for an entire yard—can feel overwhelming.

Yet tree selection is the single most important decision you can make.

At The Shady Tree, we draw upon our vast experience with trees to suggest trees that meet your preferences about appearance and maintenance, that grow to your desired size in height and breadth, and that will thrive in the soil and sun conditions of your intended site.

Crave springtime bloom? Summer shade? Autumn color? The sculptured form of evergreen?

Once you have decided on the type or types of trees you want to plant, we will select the finest specimens of those species.

Share your tree dreams with us. We'll make them come true!
