Hard to believe but spring is right around the corner. If you’re planning to plant a tree or two around your yard, keep the following in mind.
It’s important to select a tree that will thrive in the conditions we find here in the Conejo Valley. That’s the key to the tree’s long-term survival and reduced maintenance. So, consider the following before you select a tree:
- Soil conditions
- Exposure to both sun and wind
- Your yard’s drainage
- Available space
- Recreational activities around your yard
- Susceptibility to insects
One good way to get ideas about a specific species to plant is to simply notice which trees are thriving around your local neighborhood – whether you live in Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, Westlake or Agoura. And feel free to drop by your local nursery for suggestions!
