It is almost time for spring chores and at the top of your list should be planting a tree or two.
Planting trees at your house helps the environment, of course, but it also enhances the beauty of your home investment.
Here are 3 great trees you may consider planting in your landscape or yard.
Clump river birch trees are the ideal popular anchor tree for any landscape. They have stately lines and a fairly fast growth rate that makes them fill in quickly. If you have areas of your landscape that are constantly retaining water, planting a river birch or two will help to sop up the soggy area and make that birch flourish.
River birch trees do get some insect damage during the summer. Japanese beetles love to munch on them, as well as leaf minor. If you do plant a river birch, be prepared to have it treated for insects a couple times during the summer. You should also fertilize them each spring to keep them growing and photosynthesizing properly.
The dark red or purple Japanese maple has made a large impact in the United States in the last 10 years. In fact, it is nearly becoming over-planted in landscapes in the Midwest. Even so, it still makes a nice addition to a semi-shaded area of any garden. The Jap Maple will grow slowly and can be easily pruned to keep it small for the site you choose.
Crab apples that are not on newer root stock can develop apple scab fungus. Check with your local nursery for disease resistant varieties that are available in your area.
Purple Plum or Sand Cherry
Very popular for parkways and commercial settings are the non-fruiting varieties of pear trees. The Cleveland Pear and Bradford Pear are two of the most popular with their spring white flower blooms and tight, upright growth habits. The pear varieties never need pruning and have almost no problems with diseases or insects.
These are just a few of the wonderful plants and trees that are available for planting this spring. What ever you do, be sure to add more and more greenery to your landscape each and every year. Looking for Landscaping Advise please visit All Solution Near Me site,
