Planting trees in and around your yard is a great way to enhance your landscape as well as add value to your home in the future. While you may be drawn to some trees more than others, it is important to consider the growing conditions for any tree that you are thinking of adding to your outdoor space, as well as the care that it may require over time. If you are looking to plant new trees into your landscaping this spring, consider these three factors for choosing the right ones for your property.
Every Tree has Its Own Necessary Survival Conditions
Although a tree may look beautiful as part of your landscape, it will only continue to look that way if its needs for survival are properly fulfilled in your yard. For this reason, it is especially important to do your research on the necessary survival conditions for any tree that you want to plant in order to ensure that it will remain healthy in your yard for many years to come. An example of this would be a tree such as a willow tree, which depends on very moist soil to thrive when planted.
Some Trees Can Be Challenging
The peak season for a tree may be especially beautiful, however it may come with some unsavory parts or patterns that might make it less desirable for your landscape. These unfavorable qualities of trees sometimes include sap, thorns, or excessive fallings leaves and twigs, presenting challenges with maintenance and clean-up throughout the year.
Not All Trees Can Flourish in High Traffic Areas
If you live in a particularly rural area, this factor may not be as big of a concern. However if you live in the city or suburbs with higher traffic, a tree’s reaction to pollution should be a major consideration for you. Research how your favorite tree may respond to conditions with car exhaust so that your money and efforts are not wasted on trees that cannot thrive in the conditions surrounding your home.
