How to Choose the Right Trees for Your Yard

There are thousands of different types of trees, and each has its own unique set of attributes and benefits. So how do you choose the right trees for your needs? Read on to find out.

Consider the Weather

Some trees thrive in colder climates, while others prefer warmer locales. Think about the weather in your area and make sure that your preferred tree is equipped to handle the changing of the seasons.

Location, Location, Location

Where you plan on placing the tree can have a major impact on what type of tree is most appropriate. If you have power lines going over your yard, a tree that will grow very tall is not the best option. If you are looking to create an element of privacy in your yard, you’ll want to look for trees that are thick and lush around the base.

Take Soil Conditions into Account

As with the weather, the type of soil in your yard can greatly influence what types of trees will flourish there. Discuss this with the experts at your local nursery to ensure that your preferred type of tree will be able to get enough water and nutrients from your soil.

Trees for Decorative Purposes

If your main goal for a tree is to provide an element of beauty in your yard, look for a tree that flowers or bears fruit. You’ll want this tree to look great throughout the year, so try to choose one that maintains its flowers and leaves for as many seasons as possible, rather than only flowering for a brief period of time.
