3 Considerations to Make Before You Choose to Plant a New Tree


Before you plant a new tree, these considerations are important to think about.

Asking your residential landscape designer to incorporate some trees in your landscape design is always a good idea. They work to enhance the overall appearance of a home and, if planted in the right spots, can even help reduce your monthly utility bills. Some trees may be more appealing to you than others, but regardless of what your personal preferences are, you’re going to want to understand what the growing conditions for each species are. When working with Honeysuckle Nursery and Design to plant trees on your property, make sure you’ve thought about these considerations beforehand or go over them with us for the best possible experience!

1. Trees Have Different Growth Conditions

Your tree is going to add a beautiful touch to the overall look of your home but you’re going to want to set yourself up for future success. That means the right conditions to promote growth and keep your tree thriving at all times. This is why it’s important that your landscape designer does the research into what trees are ideal for the climate you live in as well as the particular spot of land that you’re going to be planting in. Take willow trees for example—they require moist soil to thrive, so you’re going to want to keep that in mind if your favorite trees are willows.  

2. Remember the Impact of High Traffic

While those who live in rural areas may not have to worry about this as much, for others, it’s a serious concern. Higher foot traffic can end up hurting trees and some trees are particularly sensitive to actual vehicle traffic. Car exhaust can end up hurting trees, so you want to do some research beforehand if you live on a major road or within a city. 

3. Rely on a Professional

If it isn’t already clear, growing trees can be rather tricky. No matter how much experience you may think you have or how much independent research you’ve done, you’re going to get the best tree-growing experience by actually asking a professional. Someone who works with trees as a professional arborist is going to be able to give you the best guiding advice to help set you up for the future.
