Ella Maxwell from Hoerr Nursery says now is a good time to start thinking about trees. Shade trees are a great remedy for the sweltering summer months for your deck or patio. There are many varieties, including an Autumn Blaze Maple (which grew 18+ inches with the spring rain); a Red Maple, which will begin coloring in mid-to-late September; a Bald Cypress, which can ask as a shade tree; and an Oak tree, which comes in red (pointed leaves) or white (rounded leaves).
