I live in North Fort Myers Florida about 10 miles from the coast. I would like to plant an evergreen shade tree in the front of my house (to the right) which faces west north west. Would an avacado tree be appropriate or should I choose some other kind of tree and if so what?

Hi. I think it is important to have a fair idea of what trees will perform best in your area, for your needs, in terms of growth, care, drought resistance, size, etc. Below is a bit of info, in general and specific, on trees that are available in your area. I hope this is of use to you.

Here is info on avocado trees (varieties, etc.) It is important to choose a tree that will do well in your heat, cold, fruit production, etc

This link is for info on Native trees and others that stand up to Florida growing conditions.

Here is a list from FSU detailing trees that grow well in Fla. just click on a name for info on the tree.
