Tree Planting Boise

One of the most important things to consider when planning a new landscaping project is tree planting. There are hundreds, if not thousands of tree varieties available to the consumer. However, not all tree varieties grow well in all areas. The USDA has established planting guideline zones for plant hardiness across the nation. Idaho has a planting zone of 3-7. When selecting a landscaping company, it is best to use an established business in your local area. For the Boise, Idaho area,  contact us at Premier Tree & Landscaping LLC. Our locally owned company knows not only what trees will grow in this area, but what will thrive as well.

Tree planting guideline for size and distance

Tree Size and Location Is Important

Tree planting requires forethought. Trees need room to grow. Considering the type of tree and the size it will be when mature will determine the best planting location. Having a tree too close to a home or other structures on the property could have unfavorable consequences and eventually require tree removal. A size and distance guideline when planting trees near a house or structure on the property is the following:

  • Small trees should be at least 8 to 10 feet from any structure.
  • Medium size trees should be no closer than 15 feet from a structure.
  • Large trees should keep a distance of at least 20 feet from the structure.

When planting conifers as a hedge, allow 2 to 4 feet from the fence. Typically, these trees grow out about 2 feet from the base. However, the distance could vary depending on the variety chosen.

A good recommendation for walkways is 3 to 4 feet. This distance will allow room for maintenance and decreases the possibility of damage to the walkway from the root system.

There is a lot to consider when it's time to incorporate tree planting into your landscaping plans. However, with the help of Premier Tree & Landscape LLC, everything will turn out just like it is supposed to. There won't be surprises later on down the road.

Purpose of Trees on the Landscape

Typically, people choose a larger size tree for shading purposes. If planted at the southwest corner of the house, it will shade the house on hot summer afternoons.

A couple of small ornamental trees are the perfect complement to the front lawn.

The more self-reliant homeowner may want to consider a few fruit or nut trees in the back.
