Uniqueka Davis-McKinney

When choosing the right tree for your home, it is essential to take one’s time while researching different tree varieties. Some trees can be enjoyed for many generations, while others can be a source of regret for some families. Whether it be beautiful foliage, privacy, or the future location of a treehouse, tree buyers must ask themselves what they want from a tree, and what types of trees will best suit this decision. Uniqueka Davis McKinney, gardener and landscaper, understands not all trees are well suited for every family’s unique needs. Today, Uniqueka Davis McKinney hopes to share her knowledge of gardening and tree selection in hopes of helping others purchase the appropriate tree for their home and family.

Climate and Environment

Certain trees are more well suited to environments than others. When it comes to urban environments and their atmospheric pollutants, poor soil quality, night lighting, snow plows’ salt sprays, and poor drainage, only specific trees will be able to thrive in such a harsh environment. Some of the trees well suited for urban living include oak, ginkgo, honey locust, sweetgum, crabapple, zelkova, Washington hawthorn, and Norway maple.

Types of Foliage

While there are many benefits of planting a tree in your garden, it is important to recognize that trees come with their own liabilities. Trees can be messy, and certain trees will drop seeds, twigs, petals, and fruits in certain seasons. Homeowners with small children or dogs should be aware of these challenges. Those looking to purchase a tree for their home are encouraged to research a wide variety of trees to fully understand each tree’s pros and cons.

Trees Native to the United States

When looking to purchase a tree, it is always a good idea to research trees native to your area. Trees that are native to a location are more adapted to the climate and will often be healthier and will require less care. For gardeners living in the United States, the following are trees native to the different regions in the US:
