Trees are very important to the Kansas landscape for more than simple aesthetic reasons. As you probably know if you have lived a while in the state of Kansas, there are large expanses of flat land. Trees serve many purposes in these flat lands. For one, strong trees will provide the land with sturdy windbreaks that protect nearby fields and yards from Kansas winds. For protection against the intense sunlight during the summer, long rows of tall trees provide the best line of defense, plus they guard against soil and water erosion.
There are ornamental trees that provide visual interest that add height to areas of flat, Kansas landscapes. You want to select varieties like bur oaks, hickory trees, elms and cottonwoods that are known for thriving in Kansas. Make sure that for your landscape, you place all large, towering varieties away from homes, power lines and other structures that can experience damage from broken branches during high winds.
