Vacaville Tree Service gets a lot of questions from our customers and we enjoy providing scientific, realistic responses. Well, we have gotten a lot of questions about what types of trees are the best to plant in the City of Vacaville, but we have not really written too much about it nor provided answers to these questions. There is a lot of new development in Vacaville, new homes being built, so it makes sense to write about this topic now so we can perhaps sway new homeowners into planting trees that will be successful.
How do you decide what trees to plant?
There are a lot of factors to think about when planting a tree. A couple questions to consider: What is the purpose of the tree? Do you want a fruit producing tree? Do you want a tree for shade? Privacy? Aesthetics? How tall and wide do you want the tree to be at maturity? By answering these questions, you will be able to weed out the trees you do not want on your property and perhaps find that tree that fits your mold. That is the goal of Vacaville Tree Service, find the tree that is perfect for you.
Choosing a tree that will be successful is important. Planting a tree to only see it die a year later is not something you would like to go through I imagine. You need to investigate trees that do well in Vacaville’s climate and soil. Climate plays an important role in tree growth. Vacaville does not typically have extreme weather conditions, discounting the crazy windstorms we have been having. Our seasons are moderate. But, if the recent windstorms are any indication of future weather conditions, it might be a good idea to look in to a tree that has a strong foundation and strong branches. Also, determine what kind of soil your property has. Most soil in the valley is adobe, a clay like soil, which can be difficult for certain trees to grow in.
