Top 5 Trees for Fall Color
October 1, 2016
Brighten up your landscape this autumn with one of these
trees through our Sacramento Shade
hawthorn – Bright orangey-red colored leaves on this tree make it stand out
in the Fall. It’s a fast growing small tree that also has white flowers in the
Spring and bright red berries in winter.
– The unique fan-shaped leaves on this prehistoric tree really shine in the
fall when the tree is covered in a buttery yellow color. The leaves drop off
the tree fairly quickly, making raking a breeze.
– Bright red leaves on this pyramidal shaped tree make it pop in a fall
landscape. Tupelos grow moderately fast and tolerate poor draining soils.
pistache – A longtime fall favorite in our region, this medium-size tree
has spectacular, electric orange and red fall color! The most reliable fall
color show for our area.
oak – You don’t want to miss the bright red lobed leaves on this large oak.
After the gorgeous scarlet color in fall, the leaves turn golden brown and hang
on the tree through much of the winter.
