Choosing and planting a tree should be a well-informed and planned decision. Proper selection and planting of urban trees can provide years of enjoyment for you and future generations as well as increased property value, improved environmental quality, and economic benefits. On the other hand, an inappropriate tree for your site or location can be a continual challenge and maintenance problem, or even a potential hazard, especially when there are utilities or other infrastructure nearby. Read this publication before planting trees on your property.
Refer to the publication Tree Selection for the Unnatural Environment (FNR-531-W) for more details on tree selection.
