Q.Best type of tree?

Zone LA1 3SX | Clren19 added on March 5, 2019 | Answered

We live in a new build and are looking for a couple of trees for a few reasons….
1. Privacy so something with a fairly good canopy all year round but only leaves so at the top.
2. Our garden is quite wet so something that likes this type of ground and will possibly dry it out a bit.

Many thanks ?

Although I am not familiar with your part of the world, from my limited research I see that it doesn't get hot or cold. That will limit what kind of trees that you can plant in your area to those that don't require hot or cold dormancies. Magnolia trees can, potentially, suit your needs here, but it can be difficult to find trees that tolerate wet feet.

If you are able to include trees that are not evergreen then this article will help you to find something suited for that area: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/wet-soil-trees.htm
