So you want a lot of trees in your yard.

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.

Lenn, this post caught my attention after spending the afternoon in my yard mowing and raking leaves. The trees sure are nice in the Spring and Summer though!

Mitch.  Thanks for dropping by.  The landscaping in my yard works me to a frazzle.  My own fault.  I planted the stuff.

I just lost a big tree and had to have it cut down.  In a moment of madness I thought about putting another one in.  I slept on it and changed my mind.

Liz.  Good thinking.   I'd like to plan my landscaping all over again.

Now, I just pull them when they die.  There are always more to take their place.
