Looking to add a tree to your property? You’re making a great decision, but there’s a good deal of decision making that goes into picking a tree, including picking a tree size. Working closely with a professional tree care service like Harford Tree can make the process go smoothly, but it’s good to be aware of what the options are as a consumer. Make sure you make these three big considerations when choosing a tree size.
Pick the Right Species
Just keep in mind that tree size isn’t just about the actual trunk, but that root systems matter as well. Some kinds of trees can have roots that damage nearby plumbing or even your home’s foundation. As a result, it’s important to be aware of the potential impacts of planting a tree could be on the surrounding environment. You also need to choose a tree type that can fit within the environment you’re working in, as not all trees work in every temperate zone and you want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to promote growth.
Be Aware of Varieties
Even within a species, there are different varieties of trees that could grow to different sizes. Just keep in mind when choosing a tree that you need to know quite a lot about a specific specimen before knowing about how large it will get. You have to look at your landscape and imagine what a tree of that size could mean for your home and property. Different kinds of trees grow to different sizes of course, so you must be certain you’re getting what you really want!
Even once you have the right tree in mind and know all about tree size, placement impacts that as well. Environmental factors like too much sun or even too much shade can change how your tree grows and impact its overall health. Avoid planting trees too close to your home as it can have big impacts on your foundation.
