The Best Fast Growing Trees for Planting in Illinois

Looking for fast growing shade trees, colorful shrubs, evergreens or vibrant fruit trees to enhance the natural beauty of your residential landscape?  The team at Trees R Us, Inc. can help you select the right trees and shrubs for your home or business taking into account the soil type and light levels.

Our wonderful Prairie State enjoys a relatively temperate climate. Summers are hot and wet, while winters are cold and snowy. The sharply defined seasons mean a big difference in temperature with average temperatures in the colder months reaching 22 degrees Fahrenheit in the north and 37 degrees in the south. During the summer, northern temperatures will reach 70 degrees in the north with an increase of 10-15 degrees in the south. If you want the best from your trees and plants, we suggest that you bear in mind the temperatures, rainfall and light and soil conditions of your area when choosing them.

The Best Trees for Planting in Illinois
Shade trees are a must for the Illinois summer. The Trees "R" Us, Inc. staff recommends the Hybrid Poplar, which is one of the most attractive and fast growing trees around or the American Beech which provide dense shade.
If you’re looking for fruit trees to enhance your summer garden, you will love the Nules Clementine. Despite its small size, this tree soon becomes loaded with fruit each summer. It makes a lovely colorful addition to your patio. Also, the fast growing Red Haven Peach has a delicious flavor and provides an abundance of fruit very quickly. 

If you’d like extra privacy for your home without having to look at a drab wall or fence, check out our living walls. The staff at Trees "R" Us, Inc, recommends a range of rapid growing evergreens that will interlock their feathery branches to form a beautiful screen in no time at all. Thuja Green Giant is the most popular evergreen in the United States and grows at an incredible rate of up to 5 feet per year. Other hardy alternatives are the Willow Hybrid and American Holly.

Also, a favorite to plant is the Illinois state tree, the White Oak. This large, rugged tree has bright green, lobed leaves and produces small green acorns. It has a wide-spread, irregular crown and grows up to 60-100 feet.

Illinois’s state soil is the Drummer series, which was established in 1929. It was named after Drummer Creek in the Prairie State’s Drummer Township. It is comprised of deep soil that does not drain well. If you have this type of soil in your garden, you will need to add organic matter and fertilizer to ensure your trees grow to their full potential.
