Selecting the Right Tree

Proper tree selection can provide you with years of enjoyment as well as significantly increase the value of your property. An inappropriate tree for your property can be a constant maintenance problem or even a hazard.

Take advantage of the abundant references on gardening at:
  • Arboretums
  • Gardening clubs
  • Local libraries
  • Native plant
  • Nurseries
  • Universities
The City Forester can assist with the decision if you desire to plant on the city's boulevard or other public right-of-way.
