When landscaping your yard, trees are often chosen for their attractive features. However, it is also important to consider how tall or wide the tree can eventually become. Some trees are great for providing shade while others are more suited as wind screens, or for privacy in certain areas of your yard, perhaps a hot tub, or patio area.
If you want to attract birds, trees can also be a natural food source and home for many generations to come. Also consider that mature trees on your yard will increase your property value when it comes time to sell your home.
