Trees are beautiful. They can also be a challenge.
You must manage trees on your lot. If you plant a tree, do not plant it close to the foundation of your home. That tree will grow and so will the roots.
Tall pines can be a cause of concern in high winds.
My lot is one of 23 from a former Christmas Tree farm. None of the trees left are near my home. Pines don't have a leaf problem.
I often with buyers who wanted a "wooded lot" but after a few years of managing leaves, they wish they'd selected a lot without many trees.
THEY DO GROW.
Trees are great. They provide shade, protection, homes for wildlife especially birds.
But there are also downfalls depending on your view.
Tall trees close to buildings can be a detriment during storms. Tree removal may also be expensive if one needs to be removed.
But the biggest complaint is the leaves. A lot of trees means a lot of leaves, or in some cases pine needles.
Before deciding to have a lot of trees, remember there are also downfalls. If you don't mind the extra work, you will be rewarded.
