When it comes to planting a new tree on your property, choosing which type to plant is an important decision. Once a tree is planted and takes root, it is harder to extract it. Therefore, it is critical to keep a few things in mind. Five Star Tree Services has a few tips to help you choose the best tree for your property.
Choosing a Suitable Tree for Your Yard
Prior to selecting a tree, you need to think about what purpose it will serve on your property. Do you want a tree for decorative purposes or are you seeking a tree that will offer shade? Perhaps you are looking for a wind-breaking tree to help shield your home or a fruit-bearing tree to feed your family. There is so much diversity and variety when it comes to trees that it can be hard to whittle down your options.
Every family is unique and so are their schedules. Some trees demand more attention than others which narrows your choices to an evergreen tree or a deciduous tree. Evergreen trees stay green most of the year and though they need scheduled maintenance, they won’t need it as often. Deciduous trees are those that change colors with the season, as such, will need regular care to keep it healthy and your yard clean.
Size is a big factor when it comes to choosing the right tree for your home. You should have one of our skilled arborists come by to evaluate your property to ensure there are no conflicts with utility services or other trees in the area. Next, think about what size the tree will be once it has fully matured. Do you want a large tree to cover half of your yard and be a focal point, or are you seeking smaller decorative trees to even out the aesthetic of your property?
Land & Environment
While most trees are sturdy, not all trees are suited to every location. Soil conditions, rainfall or lack thereof all represent a significant role in choosing a suitable tree for your home. Some trees require a dry bed of soil in order to survive, while others require more acid in their dirt. Our arborist will be able to give you a list of trees that are best suited to your location and climate.
