Planting a tree is a wonderful, beautiful thing—but that doesn’t mean tree placement is always a clear task. While you may be encouraged to plant a tree to help conserve energy, make the air cleaner, and promote the overall goal of environmentalism, there are a few things you need to know before you can do it properly. Not every kind of tree is right for a planting location, and not every location is right for planting at all. It’s important to note what kinds of trees grow to what size and how you can really pick a place where your tree will thrive. Want to know more about tree placement? Read on to find out something new!
Picking the Right Tree
What are you looking to get out of planting a tree? If you’re trying to create some more shade for the summer and warm your home in the winter, a larger, leafy tree is always a good option to place near your home, provided you have enough space. Evergreens are fantastic as far as creating a perimeter around a property and can help prevent excess wind from being a nuisance. Planting evergreens along roadways is a good idea for reducing rain runoff and making a property more valuable, as well. There’s a whole lot of trees out there so we’re not going to cover them all, but essentially, you want to find a tree whose form and size fits whatever your needs and desires are. The right kind of tree makes the world of difference and an experienced arborist can help!
Picking the Right Space
As far as space goes, you need to pick the proper spot that won’t end up damaging structures or any infrastructure. Thinking ahead of time keeps longer term problems from developing so this is key! First, you want to think about the size of a tree and whether or not it will fit into the space. You also want to keep in mind things like climate or the actual site conditions. Make sure you talk to an expert so you know what trees will work in what areas before committing to anything.
