is the size of the tree you are looking for? Is it small, medium, or large?
This is important because trees can over power a landscape. Plant trees
based on the correct size for the landscape application. If the tree will
become large, plant it more than 3 feet from your house .
You have to plan where to place the tree based on its ultimate size. Take
into consideration the crown of the tree. You don't want it to burden
your house. The crown of the tree may grow to the desired height but the
tree may be to narrow to give the desired effect.
consideration is what kind of roots will this tree put out? Will they
spread like willows on the surface and travel 50 yards to your septic.
Will the roots lift up you patios and driveway? You could be blinded by
the visual effect and not see the damage that a tree can do with its roots.
