How to choose a tree for your property (Part 1)
If your choosing a new tree to plant within your property, then you’ve made an excellent choice. They provide a lifetime of fresh air, shade and beauty to your existing landscape. However you may find it difficult to choose one specific species because there are literally hundreds out there for the taking. Let’s break it down for a simpler understanding.
Shade Trees: If planted in the proper spot, they can lower the cost of the cooling bill during the warmer months and provide you with plenty of shade. Since they are packed with dense leaves, as hot air/wind passes through them, it’s cooled down. Types of shade trees include:
- Forest Eucalyptus
Ornamental Trees: These types of trees are not very large and are usually planted near walkways or for display purposes. During the changing of seasons, they’re appearance changes drastically and provides a beautiful visual effect. These include:
- Flowering cherry
- Japanese maple
