Some of the very best evergreen trees for fall planting are certain spruce, pine and arborvitae varieties that are quite resistant to winterburn. Black Hills Spruce, Colorado Blue Spruce, Meyer Spruce and Dwarf Globe Blue Spruce all seem to come through the winter in nice condition when planted in Sept/October/November.
Arborvitae varieties that also have shown good results when planted in the last 1/3 of the landscaping season are Techny, Technito, Wintergreen, American Pillar and North Pole.
Mugo Pines have also performed well when planted in the fall. These varieties include Dwarf Mugo, Tannebaum Mugo, Sherwood Compact and Jakobsens Mugo.
If you have a fairly sunny site and want to have good luck fall planting evergreens, consider giving some of these conifers a try!
