A Guide to Planting Trees Tree planting is a good and important way of enhancing the attractiveness and beauty of a landscape and gardens and also a great way of attracting wildlife. Many considerations come in play when choosing trees to plant and the time to plant them. Researching on the type of trees that would suit your landscape is a good idea before heading to the nursery to buy. These factors include the adaptability of the trees to the landscape, their size and the function of the trees. It is recommended that you choose trees that are native to the landscape as they are more adaptable to the environment. Being native to a landscape makes the trees do well in the soil, water conditions, light and temperature of the landscape. Native trees provide support to a wider range of wildlife such as bees, butterflies, birds and mammals than non – native trees would. The local heritage and landscape are also carried on by planting native trees. Only tough trees that are adaptable can do well in Utah because the climate here is arid and the winters are cold. However, trees that can thrive in Utah are not necessarily those native to Utah. Other regions of the world that share weather conditions with Utah have native trees that can do well in Utah. The function you intend for the trees should also guide your choice. People plant trees for different purposes including blocking unwanted views and noise, conservation of water and energy, controlling of soil erosion, beauty and attraction of wildlife. If you are looking to block unwanted noise and undesired view, plant trees that grow dense foliage, for controlling soil erosion, the best trees to plant are those that grow low and provide better ground cover.

Another consideration when planting trees is the fit of the tree to your garden or landscape. How you intend to position your tree and the size of your garden should determine the kind of tree you choose to plant. Planting a tree that is not well positioned or does not fit in your garden may result in blocking of your house, drainage or a view that is desirable. The trees should also not be too close to buildings or power lines, especially if they grow to big heights which would cause problems in the future.

When choosing trees to plant, consider the seasonal changes in the trees. Bear in mind how the foliage, bloom and seed head display of the trees will be during the spring, summer and fall. Spread the trees according to their different seasonal timings so that there will be no part of the landscape that looks bare during the changing seasons.
