Questions to ask when selecting a tree?

The Tree Selection Checklist:

Here are a few questions to keep in mind when selecting trees for your home.

  • What is the main purpose of the tree; shade, feature, privacy, impact?
  • Are you wanting summer colour or beautiful autumn foliage?
  • A large tree at maturity or something that will stay smaller?
  • Do you want one feature tree or a group to line a fence or driveway?
  • Are the conditions windy, shaded, full sun, wet or dry?
  • What shape of tree do you want round, oval, spreading, vase, open, irregular, columnar?

Answering these questions will help us get the right tree for you.
