Which Trees for Sale Should You Buy?

There are a number of things to consider when choosing which trees for sale to buy. Read on to find out more.

When looking at trees for sale, it can be difficult to know which is best for you. There are huge varieties of trees for sale, each with its own considerations and advantages.

Tree size.

One of the most important things to consider when choosing from the huge range of trees for sale is the size of the tree. Whilst the tree may seem small when it is young, it is important to ensure that its maximum height and spread is not too large. Large trees block sunlight from your garden (and your neighbours' gardens) and can cause trouble with falling leaves and branches.

Damage risk.

You must also consider the risk of damage to your property when choosing from trees for sale. First of all, some trees can cause cracks in property walls. This happens when tree roots reach clay soil, soaking up the clay's moisture which can cause the clay to dry out and shrink. Clay drying out can drive ground movement, affecting house foundations, which can result in cracked walls. Not all buildings are at risk from this, so it's worth assessing your houses' surrounding site before choosing trees for sale.

Roots can cause damage to drains. Tree roots seek out moisture, and will grow inside any small cracks in pipes or drains. As the roots grow, the expansion creates pressure in the pipes which can cause them to break. Trees can also damage structures if too much pressure is placed upon them, with structures also at risk from falling branches or unstable trees. There is also an unseen threat underground to consider with tree suckers leading to damage particularly around pavements. All of which are easily avoided providing the right considerations are made.

Trees for the seasons.

It is worth knowing what your tree will provide season by season. Consider flowering times, fruits and colouring, and the tree's relationship with other trees and plants in your garden through the seasons. Some trees provide vibrant colour all year round, whereas others are most colourful during specific seasons such as when flowering or in the autumn when the leaves turn red. On a similar note, you should also consider whether the tree is deciduous or evergreen. Deciduous trees lose their leafs in winter, which when managed as 75 % brown leaf together with 25% green waste can provide the benefit of a compost that is rich in leaf mould. During the spring, summer and autumn, deciduous trees flower and turn red accordingly, offering a colourful seasonal variety, with some trees such as Birch or Cherry noted for their interesting bark once their leaves are lost. Evergreen trees, on the other hand, do not lose their leaves in winter which can provide a strong ever present feature.
