How to Choose the Best Tree?

Here’s a breakdown of the process you’ll want to use before you choose a tree for your yard.

  • Know Your Yard – The first thing you need to do is look at your yard. You want to look at the amount of space you have, what’s in the ground, and what type of soil that you have. For the last one, you can get a test that will tell you more about your dirt.

  • Know Your Trees – After you figure out what type of soil you have in your yard and how much room you have to play with, it’s time to start investigating what types of trees are going to do best in your particular yard.

  • Make the Choice – After you match up the different trees available with the space and soil you have in your yard, it’s time to make the choice. Take your time with this because the tree will hopefully be around for a long time.
