What You Should Know About Trees This Year

Choosing Trees for Planting A great way of enhancing the attractiveness and beauty of a landscape and attractive wildlife is through planting of trees. The type of trees to plant and the time to plant should be considered before you decide to start the planting. Researching on the type of trees that would suit your landscape is a good idea before heading to the nursery to buy. Things to consider when buying trees for planting are the adaptability of the tree, the function and the size that the trees grow to. Trees that are native to the landscape are advisable choices because they are more adapted to the environment. Indigenous species are normally suited by the soil, temperature, water conditions and the pest and diseases of the particular area. Native trees provide support to a wider range of wildlife such as bees, butterflies, birds and mammals than non – native trees would. This is in addition to maintaining the heritage of the local landscape. Utah is arid and the winters are cold and only tough and adaptable trees can do well in Utah. It should however be known that not only trees native to Utah can do well here. Trees from other regions of the world that are arid or dry do very well in Utah. The trees you plant should also be guided by the intended function. The functions served by trees vary from water conservation, soil erosion control on steep landscapes, blocking of noise and views that are not desired and also for attracting birds, insects and mammals. Trees that grow to be dense are the best for blocking noise and undesirable views while those that are lower growing provide the best ground cover to control soil erosion.

The fit and positioning of the tree to the landscape should also be a consideration when planting trees. Depending on the size of your garden, choose trees that fit in the garden both in size and form. You do not want to plant that will grow to block your house or draining system or a desired view. To avoid problems in the future when the trees are fully grown, avoid growing big trees too close to power lines or your house.
The Essentials of Trees – Getting to Point A
It is also a good idea to have seasonal considerations when planting trees. In each tree group that you choose consider how their foliage, seed head display and bloom changes through spring, summer and fall. Incorporate different trees with different timings so that there will be no part of the landscape that will look bare when the seasons change.
