Here are some things to consider when you’re choosing trees for your yard.
1. Size matters. You don’t want a tree that will bump into your house or power lines or totally cover your property when it reaches maturity. Learn about tree sizing here.
2. Regional appropriateness. Plug in some data about your region and the tree characteristics you like, and the Tree Wizard will generate tree recommendations based on your location.
3. Economic impact. Trees have both an environmental and economic impact. Calculate their value here!
