How to select your new tree

When landscaping a new home or replacing a tree lost to damage or disease, tree selection is one of the most important investment decisions a homeowner makes. Since most trees have the potential to outlive the people who plant them, the impact of tree selection is one that can influence a lifetime.

Form/Shape according to what you want the tree to do. The benefit will be fewer maintenance costs and an increase in the tree’s landscape value.
Size according to mature size (both above and below ground) in order to fit the tree to the planting space.
Soil Condition according to the soil pH and fertility.
Exposure according to the type of sun and wind exposure it will receive.
Drainage according to the amount of drainage. Trees need oxygen to develop and thrive. Poor drainage can deplete the oxygen in the soil.
Human Activity according to the amount of human activity that will affect the tree. Statistics show that people are a large factor in tree death.
Space Constraints according to the space available to the tree for growth to maturity (above and below ground).
Hardiness according to the tree’s ability to survive in the extreme temperatures of the area (your zone range).
