Tree Identification
Home  > Tree Identification

Tree identification is the first step in providing proper care for landscape trees. For instance, some insect and disease pests will only attack certain tree species. Knowing the tree species in your landscape can often narrow down what insect or disease pests are attacking your landscape trees.

Smart homeowners do a little research before deciding what tree to plant in their landscape. There are a number of tree species suitable for use as landscape trees in your area, but closely matching the planting site to the trees’ preferred growing conditions will likely result in a healthy landscape tree. Before planting a tree in your landscape find out: What will be the mature size of the tree (height & crown spread)? Does the tree prefer shade or a sunny location? What is the preferred soil pH level for the tree species?

If you can’t identify a tree in your landscape or need advice on what type of tree to plant, consider calling an arborist. A local arborist will know the types of trees that grow best in your area and what tree species are most susceptible to insect and disease pests.
