There are a couple of things to keep in mind when selecting the type of tree, you’ll be installing:
- Light – Is the spot you have in mind located in sun or shade?
- Wind – Does the location tend to be windy or is it sheltered by your home or other trees?
- Soil – Is your soil usually dry or does water stick around after a rain?
