Trees Recommended for Small Front Yards


Three categories of trees are recommended, however not all trees will work in all yards:

  1. Columnar — shade trees which are generally 35-40 feet in height and 10-15 feet


  2. Compact — shade trees which are generally 25-30 feet in height and spread

  3. Ornamental — trees which are generally 20-25 feet in height and spread

Tree care for newly planted trees:


  1. Watering - at least once a week, more often during the summer. Regular deep soakings are better than frequent light waterings (lawn sprinklers are NOT adequate). Deep soaking means 5 buckets poured slowly or a trickling garden hose for 45 minutes. Lack of water is the #1 killer of newly planted trees

  2. Mulch - a 5’ dia. ring of bark mulch, 3 - 4” deep conserves moisture and protects trees from mowing damage. Pull mulch 4-6” away from trunk of tree.

  3. Fertilizer - Treat your trees to mycorrhizai fungi or biostimulants to aid in root development and general tree health.

A great resource for tree planting and care
