Tree Planting - Right Tree, Right Place

There are many things to consider when planting a tree: height, canopy spread, deciduous vs. evergreen, shape, growth rate, sun, soil, moisture, fruit, hardiness zone, etc.  A healthy urban forest starts with a little bit of planning.  With a little research and a simple layout, you can produce a landscape that will cool your home in summer and reduce harsh winter winds. A well-planned yard will contain trees that grow well in the soil and moisture of your neighborhood and continue to add value to your home over many years to come.
