Definitely you want to place the trees where they can filter out some of the morning and afternoon sun. I would always use larger trees. You can plant typically a 30 gallon or two inch in diameter tree to start with. If you can get something larger than that it would be great. Depending on where you are, you may want some deciduous trees or some that change colors as they begin to drop the leaves. Also as they bud, they make a nice accent with natural features for someone to look at. Landscaping trees probably are the #1 factor that adds most resale value to a home.


I think a common mistake is people plant trees and that's it. You should fertilize your trees. You can buy fertilizers like tree steak fertilizers with the instructions on them at a tree nursery. You put the fertilizers steaks or fertilizer on according to the directions either on or around the trees; however, it is directed to be applied. If you put those on the trees according to the directions and water them as well, you can add up to an edge or more in caliper per year as well as a couple feet in height and spread. You can take the tree that is not overly large when you plant it and inside a couple of years you will notice a distinct difference in it. If you do a little bit of maintenance per year your tree will show tremendous results. If and when you go to sell the property, you will definitely gain your money back. I have discovered that many people ready to sell their home were trying to go and drop all this money into the outside putting in a sprinkler system as an incentive to get someone to buy their house. That typically doesn't work anywhere near as well as if the house had already has the improvements for sometime. If the yard is established when people drive up to the curb it can draw them into the inside of the house as well. A little bit of elbow grease on the outside as well as maintaining the inside throughout the time that you occupy the domicile will definitely help you sell the house a lot faster and probably get a little bit better dollar for you as well.
