Planning to have trees on your property will require careful consideration. While trees will stay in one place for the rest of its life (unless they are removed), you, on the other hand, will need to take into account where you will place them and if the trees you have selected are the right ones for your property.
Before you go ahead with your tree planting project, here are some items you have to consider:
Height. Before you decide to plant a tree, make sure you know how it will look like when it becomes mature. While it takes years before they finally become tall and wide, it is still best to think how big the trees are when it nears maturity. Always consider the height, root space and crown spread especially if you are thinking of having more than one tree.
Canopy spread. Just like its height, you will need to think how wide the tree will be when it becomes mature. Will it take a lot of space and will affect the space on my property? Is the location of the tree suitable for it as it grows wider? Will it lose its leaves in the winter or do I want an evergreen?
Its form or shape. The shape of the tree will also determine how well it will fit your property. Tree varies among species. For instance, if you do not have a lot of space but still want to grow a tree, you can consider growing a Lombardy poplar which has a columnar shape. White oak has a round shape which can provide a great shade, the same goes with Hackberry with its V-shaped.
