Legend:
Shade tree symbol Shade Tree - a leafy tree that is mainly used for its large size and shade-providing features.
Evergreen symbol Conifer (a tree related to the pine family) - Cone-bearing tree. Usually evergreen, these trees provide much-needed winter color in almost every garden. The deciduous species (those that drop needles in the fall) can be highly ornamental.
Ash alternative - one of the shade trees recommended by MSU for use in replanting after ash removal. Check out these and the other great shade trees we have available for your yard.
Ornamental symbol - for special leaf, needle, bark, flower, fruit or other characteristics Ornamental Tree - a species or variety that has special ornamental characteristics - bark, flowers, needle color, shape, etc. Some species listed below contain varieties that are quite ornamental, such as weeping Norway Spruce. 
Fence symbol - for privacy, wind or other type of screening Screening Tree - for privacy, delineating a property line, or blocking an unsightly view. These can be combined with many other tree selections to create a stunning border.
