tree pruningBefore calling for professional tree service to take care of tasks like pruning, you have to first have big beautiful trees adorning your property. When having trees planted, or installed, it’s not done with reckless abandon. There are some ways to pick the right spot for each one of your trees to go.

You can actually make mistakes about tree placement. So, it’s better to know ahead of time what would make your landscaping and tree placement a great success.

How to Make Good Choices

There are a few things to think about when it comes to picking the right space for a tree or the right tree for the space.

  • Think about what you want the tree to do. For instance, in some spaces, you may want shade over your patio for summer shade or over the house for better energy-efficiency. You’ll need a large leafy tree and just the right placement to get the job done. If you want the sun to hit the home once the weather cools off, opt for a deciduous tree.
  • Want to create a natural border or retain some privacy? The obvious placement will be near your property line along as much of it as you want to keep secure. Evergreens are an ideal choice of trees for this purpose. Be prepared to keep your trees trimmed so as not to encroach upon neighboring properties.
  • Familiarize yourself with the expected size of the type of tree you are considering, this will help with placement. You don’t want to choose trees that grow too big to end up obstructing your view or interfering with your roof.
  • It’s great to have that big leafy tree and see the beautiful change of color in the fall. But do you really feel like taking care of the messy cleanup? Be realistic about the amount of debris your tree will leave behind; not everyone can handle trees that require high maintenance.
