Choosing the right tree for your landscape.

Choosing the right tree to plant in your landscape is a very important decision. Making a good choice will reward you for years to come as the tree thrives and grows. If the right tree choice is not made, you may have regrets and find yourself going through the process of planting another tree again. So what important factors should you consider when choosing a tree for your landscape? Here are a few thoughts:

1. How much space do you have for the plant as it grows?
Some trees will grow tall and block views, become entangled with power lines, or even shade solar electric systems.

2. What is the soil condition?
Each species of tree has preferences when it comes to soil structure and drainage.

3. How much sunlight will the tree or shrub receive?
Plants also have very specific requirements for sunlight; too much or too little sun will cause a plant to suffer and quickly decline.

4. Is the soil naturally wet or dry?
Why fight the moisture conditions? If an area is constantly wet then it's important to choose a plant that enjoys the constant moisture.

5. What activities go on around the planting site?

Many trees, such as Apple and Walnut, produce fruit that will drop onto your property, cars and even people! So there is a clean up factor to consider.

6. What other features are you looking for?
Some trees have fall color, attractive flowers, and ornamental bark, grow fast or slow, produce edible fruit, or even smell nice. It is difficult to find one tree or shrub that is perfect - so choosing which features are most important to you will help to narrow down your search.

One good suggestion in choosing what plant materials you like is to take a walk around your neighborhood, take a few photos and build a landscape file. Also, visit the Denver Botanic Gardens on a nice day and see what plants are thriving. Seeing trees and shrubs in the different seasons will help you decide as well. You might also speak with a local Arborist when you have questions about how certain plants will react to the erratic and harsh Colorado environmental conditions. We have several on staff here at Mountain High.

from Craig Little
Craig LittleTip of the Month:
Wow, February started off with a snowy bang. Nearly 20" fell all across the Metro area and made a mess of our roads, but luckily, our trees made it through unscathed! Keep monitoring your trees all winter long for hazardous conditions such as broken, hanging or stressed limbs and large branches.
