A Guide to Planting Trees A great way of enhancing the attractiveness and beauty of a landscape and attractive wildlife is through planting of trees. Many considerations come in play when choosing trees to plant and the time to plant them. It is advisable to first do research on the best trees for your landscape before you go the nursery to purchase the planting materials. Things to consider when buying trees for planting are the adaptability of the tree, the function and the size that the trees grow to. It is recommended that you choose trees that are native to the landscape as they are more adaptable to the environment. Native trees will do well in the soil, temperature, water, light and pest conditions of a place. In attracting supporting wildlife such as bees, birds and butterflies, native trees do a better job than trees that are not native. Indigenous trees also help maintain the local landscape and heritage. Utah is arid and the winters are cold and only tough and adaptable trees can do well in Utah. However, trees that can thrive in Utah are not necessarily those native to Utah. Trees that are not native to Utah but grow in other regions of the world that are arid can also thrive in Utah. The function you intend for the trees should also guide your choice. Trees are used for different functions such as conserving water, blocking views that are undesirable, blocking noise, controlling soil erosion, and attraction of birds and insects such as bees and butterflies. 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.

The fit and positioning of the tree to the landscape should also be a consideration when planting trees. How you intend to position your tree and the size of your garden should determine the kind of tree you choose to plant. You do not want to plant that will grow to block your house or draining system or a desired view. To avoid problems in the future when the trees are fully grown, avoid growing big trees too close to power lines or your house.
