Everyone enjoys the beauty a tree provides. In fact, deciduous trees are the basic element for any landscape plan. They can create
shady conditions for planting flowers or act as the focal point within a specific area of the garden. But the wrong tree or one planted in the wrong
spot can actually detract from the overall landscape.
A tree is a long-term investment; don't risk losing 5 to 10 years of precious tree growing time by selecting the wrong tree! The University of Illinois Extension has created a Web site titled "Selecting Trees for Your Home" where homeowners can learn about the various types of trees and their individual characteristics. But the best way to make wise choices is to let the professional design staff at Reds help you decide where a tree is needed and what that tree should do to enhance your landscape. Then let us help you select a species that will meet your requirements for shade, beauty, color, and protection from harsh winds.
