What is Your Favorite Tree

Recently on our Facebook Fan Page I asked the question, Do you have a favorite tree? I thought I would extend that offer to you.

What’s Your Favorite Tree and Why?

Ben is an employee of the Arbor Day Foundation. My favorite types of trees are flowering trees and my favorite tree is the Japanese Red Maple.


  1. My favorite Tree is a sycamore. When I am at work trimming them I just have become very fond of them because of how unique they look. Great trees to climb It is awful when I have to do a removal on one…

    Great question!


  2. Growing up a few hours drive from the Arbor Day Farm my favorite tree is the Bur Oak. These trees are quite impressive when they reach a few hundred years old. I like them so much that my daughter and I planted one in our yard last year on Mother’s Day. I’ve had many people say that the nuts that drop off will be a nuisance but the tree is in the back of the house and therefore will not be a nuisance. Our little tree has grown almost a foot this year and is performing quite well; but then again it does get babied.

    We haven’t made the trek out to California to see the Giant Sequoia and Redwoods so my favorite tree may change once we embark on that journey.
