What Trees are Native to Georgia?

Many maple trees, including the red maple, are native to Georgia. The river birch is a very fast growing tree that is a Georgia native tree. The tulip poplar is another fast growing tree that is native to Florida. It offers shade and is a native flowering tree as well. The hardy American sycamore is also fast growing and long-lived. The northern red oak is a sturdy native tree that is a favorite of wildlife and songbirds. The eastern redbud and flowering dogwoods(Cornus florida) are stunning flowering native Georgia trees that bloom in early spring. 

When to Plant Trees in Georgia

Spring and fall are the ideal seasons for planting Georgia trees. For the warmer parts of Georgia you can plant most trees just about anytime of year. Take care to offer plenty of water when planting in summer. The cooler parts of the state can plant almost anytime as long as the ground isn’t frozen. Just avoid planting Georgia trees that are sensitive to low temperatures in winter. Trees that like cool temps and tend to get stressed by heat and drought should not be planted in summer.

How to Plant Georgia Trees

Be sure the root ball of your Georgia tree is moist so it is ready to plant. Dig a hole at least twice as wide as the pot of your tree, but not quite as deep as the pot is tall. Put your tree in the hole and be sure it is level and straight. The top of the root ball should be slightly higher than the existing soil line. Fill the soil in around the root ball. Tamp the soil down gently with your hands to remove air pockets. Water deeply until the earth around your tree is completely saturated. Apply mulch in a mound around your new tree to help retain soil moisture, protect the roots, and reduce weeds. Pull the mulch away from the trunk to avoid promoting issues with pests and disease. Water your Georgia tree daily for the first week and 1 to 3 times weekly for the first 2 to 3 months until your tree is established. Water heavily less often rather than watering a small amount often. Let the hose run for a couple minutes at the base of your tree.

When to Prune Trees in Georgia

Winter or early spring is the best time to prune most Georgia trees. However, trees that flower in spring should be pruned once their bloom period has ended. Fall is also a good time for pruning many Georgia trees because of cooling temperatures. A tree’s metabolic processes also slow down at this time. Avoid pruning evergreens in late fall in the cooler parts of the state. Pruning can encourage new growth which can then be damaged by freezing temperatures. This won’t kill your tree, but it can kill the new growth. Minor pruning can be done anytime of the year. Broken, dead, or diseased branches should be removed when you notice them regardless of the time of year.

What Fruit Trees Grow in Georgia?

The Meyer lemon tree can grow in the ground in the warmest parts of the state (zones 8 and 9) or as a patio plant in zones 6, 7, 8. and 9. Apple trees, peach trees, cherry trees, and pear trees can grow throughout Georgia. Fig trees and persimmon trees can grow in growing zones 7, 8, and 9. The Chicago hardy fig tree can grow in zone 6 as well. These Georgia fruit trees all grow well in this state.
