Deciding what kind of tree to plant is just as important as deciding where you want to plant it. Both will impact your landscaping’s visual appearance and your tree care needs.
To get the most value from your trees, plant your trees where they will provide shade and privacy. Be sure to plant them in areas where they won’t interfere with the structure of your home or utility lines, fences, etc.
You will also want to consider the root system. This is important because you don’t want the roots growing into your foundation. In this regard, deciduous trees are ideal because they provide plenty of shade, provide shade year round, and are excellent at blocking the wind.
Finally, be sure that your trees will be resistant to insects and diseases. You can give them a hand in this regard by ensuring that you remove any dead branches or fallen leaves around the base.
