Evergreen Tree

Suncoast Estates, FL

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 area...re: heat, cold, fruit production, etc


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