How to Select a Tree
Finding the right tree for Utah’s rapidly-changing weather climate is difficult; let our experts help you find the right tree to enhance your yard. Selecting the right tree is a process that you need to carefully plan as it can be an expensive investment in money and time.
Buying the wrong tree can be an eyesore to your home, and it can lead you with a mess to clean up in the fall if you hate Maple Tree Seeds that fly all over your yard. Before you buy a tree, call us to help you select the right tree for your yard. Here are some questions to consider before you buy a tree:
- What is the purpose of the tree? Are you adding a tree for shade, beautification, screening, privacy, windbreaks, or energy conservation?
- Is the tree appropriate for your area? Some trees will not flourish in different areas along the Wasatch Front. We work with trees that work well in our Utah climate. Your yard conditions can change based on shade, water, and the soil conditions. A sheltered yard may be capable of supporting plants that an open, sunny yard is incapable of handling. Fences will change which plants are capable of surviving in certain yards. While your neighbors might have some beautiful trees growing, your large wood fence can shade the same trees on your side, making it difficult for them to flourish. Soil conditions throughout Utah vary as some are sandy while others are extremely rocky or compacted.
- How large will the tree grow? When a tree is initial planted, it is hard to determine how large it will become. If you are planning to stay in your home for twenty years, imagine how large that tree will become. A tree that is too large will need to be removed as it can become dangerous if it is planted too closely to a home. On the flip side, small trees can fail to provide the shade and protection from the wind that you were hoping for. We can help you select the right tree based on your desire for the tree to grow to a particular size.
- How long will the tree live? Short-lived trees are designed to live for less than 20 years, as they are smaller and designed to be ornamental. The reason for planting trees with a short lifespan is to create a specific landscape design or planting a tree that is merely for shape and size appeal. Some fruit trees are meant to last short term as well. Smaller trees can be used to hold the landscape appeal while a large tree is planted in a similar area, and eventually grows large enough to overtake the area of the smaller tree. We can help you understand which trees are best for your yard based on their life expectancy.
- Do you want the tree to have a particular ornamental value? Leaf colors, flowers, or fruits are some of the common elements people consider when selecting a tree. It is important to consider the colors you want to have in your yard year round, or if trees with nuts or fruits will be to dirty for your yard. Pest control is another consideration as some trees are prone to certain pests that cause problems.
- Is the species over planted? Some species are too common in your neighborhood, which can lead to diseases.
- Is the tree evergreen or deciduous? An evergreen tree offers year round shade and protection from wind and noise. A deciduous tree provides shade in the summer, but it doesn’t offer shade protection in the winter.
