The truth is that there is no single answer that is right for everyone. Since you are on this page, we will assume you have a small yard and want to know about trees for small yards. There are many small trees to choose from. Some are flowering and look well when planted with other flowering plants to give your front yard the look that the whole neighborhood will envy. There are some small decorative trees for the front yard that can be planted closer to the house than others. Be sure to find out how big your tree will get and give it enough room to grow. Another thing to consider about planting trees in the yard is the location of your septic drain field if you have one. It is best to avoid planting there as tree roots can cause issues with your drain field leading to costly repairs.
There are many trees that work well as shade trees for small yards. The Bauhinia family of trees will grow large enough to give you some nice shade and also some beautiful flowers. These make great shade trees for small backyards or front yards. Again check to see how large the tree will get when it is full grown and make sure it has enough room.
Yes! When looking for the best privacy trees for small yards, you should look for trees that are either upright in growth and plant them a little closer together or trees that can also be grown as a bush. Some trees are trained to grow on a single trunk and others have many stems or small trunks coming from the ground. These are the ones that are considered a bush style tree and they will fill in to block views from the outside.
