You have a number of options here. I would suggest you do an Advanced Search on our Plant Encyclopedia on BHG.com and see what you get for results. The key here will be how tall you need your tree to be. If you are shading a two story house you'll need a tree that spreads out enough to provide shade, but it might be too large for your space. If you are shading a ranch house it might be an easier selection. Again, check out our Advanced Search function and see what you get and if you have questions after that re-post here."
