Knowing the reason you are looking to buy a tree is extemely important.

Is it to shade, screen, add a focal point to the garden? Is it required on the north side of the house; the south side? West or East? Is there structural elements near by? Paths or driveways? Will you sit under it or have the kids swing off of it! Will it have space to grow? Are there cables or power lines nearby?... Every snippet of information is necessary before you make that wonderful investment in a tree.

Ideally the most intelligent approach is to talk to a nursery professional, take the time to view their stock and understand what they do in the production area to achieve the end result. Like the tree purchase itself, it is an investment in time and money both for you and the horticulturist growing the tree.

Visit the nursery and don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions as the tree purchase is important. And if the nursery is a reputable one like ours, be prepared to be both impressed by the responses and enlightened by the experience.
