Tree Selection Ideas

Determining what type of tree to plant can be a complicated choice. There are plenty of considerations to take into account when planting a tree that, with the proper care, will go on to live for decades. At Arborwell our experts can help you navigate these choices and select the right tree for your HOA, municipal, campus or commercial property.

Our knowledge and years of experience with trees is a great asset for your company when it comes to choosing what type of trees to grow and where to grow them. A fully grown, mature tree not only looks beautiful but can add significant property value. It is a long-term investment that requires specialized planning and knowledgeable care, something Arborwell Professional Tree Management excels at.

What Should You Consider When Choosing a Tree?

Our ISA-certified arborists can help you figure out the right tree type for your landscape in a way that is simple and easy to understand. Here are some considerations to keep in mind.

How much space does the species need?

A sapling is a lot smaller than a fully-grown tree and it may look like there is plenty of room around it, but the size and shape of the mature tree is most important. There should be enough room for the tree to grow to maturity unhindered, both above and underground. Trees must be planted away from powerlines, sidewalks, gas and water lines, as well as from other trees.

What are the climate conditions?

Climate can drastically affect tree health and longevity. If you’re planting a tree in a wet climate, consider choosing a tree that can manage high levels of water. If you regularly experience droughts, choosing a drought-tolerant tree is preferable.

Does the species need maintenance?

Different trees require different levels of care. Be sure to choose a species that you can afford to maintain. Our experts can help you select trees with fewer maintenance requirements, ask them about it.

Is your tree species non-invasive?

Always plant non-invasive species on your property. An invasive species can spread and lead to the death of native species in the area.

Should you plant evergreen or deciduous?

Evergreen trees keep their leaves year-round, while deciduous trees lose their leaves in fall. Consider planting an evergreen if you want continuous shade and privacy. Choose deciduous if you want those beautiful fall colors and the extra light they allow during winter.
