Ornamental trees are trees which are grown primarily for their aesthetic value, rather than for a particular product such as wood, fruit, or nuts. Many cultures all over the world have a long history of using ornamental trees in their landscaping to add color and texture. Using ornamental trees in your landscaping also can help give it form and shape along with making your yard look beautiful. When planning the landscaping you are going to use you need to make sure that you are filling in the right colors.

Most garden stores sell ornamental trees, usually as juveniles, because young trees are easy to transport, handle, and plant.
Any number of features on an ornamental tree are appealing. Some are grown for their foliage, which may be distinctly colored or shaped, with people growing both evergreen and deciduous ornamental trees. Others are grown for showy displays of flowers, which may brighten up the garden in the spring. Colorful bark, distinctive growth patterns, and bright fruit may also be features of an ornamental tree. When choosing ornamental trees make sure that they do not make your yard look overcrowded because of their height.
