Q: How do I select a variety of tree for my landscape?
A: Trees and other plants are selected from various aspects, which include size of plant when mature, pest resistance, shape and etc. You can speak with the county Extension office and discuss the question with them. You can also consult horticulturists at nurseries and garden centers, reference books and visit arboretums and websites.
