Typical Tree Shapes You May Find in a Landscape


Here you will find examples of the typical tree shapes you may find in a landscape. One thing to remember - trees may have different shapes based on natural tendencies or the environment. For example, gingko biloba can have a pyramidal shape, or sometimes it becomes very irregular. Trees can also be one shape when young and change as they mature. The trees listed on each slide are commonly found in those tree shapes.
