Wet shade trees include only a few small and medium deciduous trees ranging from 15 to 50 feet. Part shade trees require 2 to 4 hours of direct sunlight per day. Bear in mind that the less sun a tree gets, the slower it usually grows.

Note that, in each list, trees from different climate zones with different growing conditions may be mixed together. Before making a final choice on any given tree, always check all its characteristics to ensure it is the right tree for the right place.
