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.

Tree removal
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!
