If you’re looking for a way to spruce up the exterior decor of your home, lawn, or landscape, you may want to consider planting a few new trees on your property. Planting a tree is a long-term investment, and when chosen wisely, will provide you with a lifetime of added beauty to your home. According to Andy Schmitz, the director of horticulture at The Brenton Arboretum in Iowa, people tend to plant whatever type of tree their neighbor has, but this is not always the best thing to do.
In this blog, we’re going to discuss some top tree species to consider for your Illinois lawn, as well as the different characteristics of each tree. If you live in the Chicagoland area and you’re in need of professional tree removal, tree trimming, or storm damage cleanup, contact the arborists at J&S Family Tree Service today.
