USDA planting zone 7 is a pretty good place to be when it comes to growing hardy deciduous trees. Summers are warm but not blazing hot. Winters are chilly but not frigid. The growing season is relatively long, at least in comparison to more northern climates. This means that selecting deciduous trees for zone 7 is easy, and gardeners can choose from a very long list of beautiful, commonly planted deciduous trees.
