Trees can be invaluable assets to a garden and any landscaping project. They come with enormous benefits and require little in the way of maintenance. While this is a decided bonus for budding gardeners, it does tend to result in a lack of knowledge when it comes to trees, especially when compared to their relatively ephemeral counterparts, like herbaceous plants, annuals, and shrubs.
The true beauty of trees is that they are an aspect of your garden or space that can easily be appreciated by everyone - not just the eager gardeners planting them, but friends, family, and visitors for generations to come.
There are also many practical benefits to planting trees. They provide excellent natural windbreaks, can act as screens, provide shade, and even bear edible food. In addition to this, trees effectively filter the dust from the air while nurturing the surrounding soil with essential minerals needed by the garden. They can punctuate a place, provide focal points, create habitats for wildlife and, of course, are naturally very beautiful.
Common tree choices are robinias (false acacia) and cherry trees, both of which are easily obtained and so are generally assumed to be a good bet. While they may be reasonably safe, are they truly the best choice for your project, or are they simply convenient?
With so many different varieties of trees available, deciding what you want can be tricky, but a great place to start is to identify exactly what you need the tree to do, and anything you don't want it to do. Here are some basic elements to decide upon which will help you narrow down the possibilities:
