Trees form an important part of our surroundings and also are an integral part of our lives. They don’t just add to our landscape but also endow us with wood. They assist us in keeping our surroundings secure by filtering odors and toxic gases such as sulfur dioxide; protect the ozone layer and gives oxygen. Trees are home to a variety of species of animals like birds, monkeys, bees, possums and squirrels. They also make available food for humans in the shape of fruits, nuts, sap, and roots. If the plants are in good shape, they will help us more. So, keeping in mind all these advantages you should get guidance from tree care specialists to make your trees healthy.
Even the smallest urban garden can benefit from the presence of at least one tree. Not all trees have to be of a size comparable to the big ones you encounter in public spaces. One example is the crab apple which will take many years to reach maturity. If left to its own devices, it will, on average, reach a height of around 20 feet. Talk to your local garden center, and they will be able to advise you of what is available. The height and spread of a tree can be contained by regular pruning. This is best left to experts unless you don’t mind shortening the lifespan of your tree. Poor tree care can quickly lead to weakness and disease.
But if you are fortunate enough to have a large garden, size doesn’t matter! Large trees have a great visual impact and can be the focal point of the garden. They can be arranged so as to draw the eye to specific parts of the garden or even to create ‘secret’ areas of the ‘outside room.’ They provide color all year round, beautiful fresh greens during the spring, blossom, mature greens of the summer and of course the beautiful autumn colors and the fruits. During the winter, many trees are evergreen and provide color all winter, But they are not all just green. You can find variegated greens, purple, and even near-blue leaves as well. The key thing is to look at the big picture. Make sure that all of the ones you choose harmonize otherwise the garden will look a bit disjointed.
