Trees can often be the single most valuable asset in your landscape. Far beyond their simple beauty, trees can reduce your air conditioning cost, control erosion, shield you from the wind, add character and scale to your site. Trees also provide a pallet of colors and aromas for your pleasure.
The right tree for your landscape.
We, at Landscaping Solutions, would guide you in the various selection of trees available to you to ensure that the correct type of tree is selected for a particular area.
It is most important to plant a tree in the right place to receive the benefit of its beauty and what it is intended to accomplish for you i.e. whether for shade, a windbreaker etc.
The location, weather and soil type are also taken into consideration so that your tree will grow to maturity and you in turn will reap the benefits.
What would be the effect of planting trees in the wrong places?
- Planting large trees under utility lines as they will be damaged as they grow to maturity.
- Planting large trees too close to the house which could limit sunlight.
- You have to take into account the root structure of the tree so that you do not plant the tree too close to a swimming pool, retaining wall, paving etc
Make informed decisions when selecting your trees.
Some better choices for trees which would fit in with your landscape might be short flowering trees and should you be requiring some cooling shade in the summer, maybe some large deciduous trees. On the other hand, you may be looking for an evergreen windbreaker.
Your tree will require care such as pruning. It is important to prune your particular tree correctly so that you do not interfere with its growth and what you are requiring your tree to ultimately look like. It is most common to prune in winter as it results in a vigorous burst of new growth in the spring.
For slow growth, pruning should be done soon after seasonal growth is complete and would be done in summer.
Corrective pruning is also done in summer. We at Landscaping Solutions are able to take care of your tree for you thus alleviating you of this tedious task.
Tree Doctor Services
Landscaping Solution's arborists are fully versed in all aspects of tree care. We are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care.
However, we don't treat your trees as separate from the rest of your landscape. We, as tree doctors, watch your trees mature, and make suggestions to help the surrounding landscape adjust to complement the changing scale of the tree. In this way, you can be sure you get the most value from your investment.
Well cared for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Pruning or removing trees especially large trees can be dangerous. Therefore tree work should be handled by those trained in this field.
