Steadfast Tree Care, a Virginia based company, has now released its much-awaited hints and tips for getting it right when choosing a tree or trees for a yard. Recently published on its blog at, the guide is intended to help homeowners or commercial property owners make smart choices when choosing trees to avoid regrets down the line.

Jim Mallinson, a spokesperson for Steadfast Tree Care, said, “We get a surprising number of calls from people who have planted trees and then encountered unexpected problems as they start to mature. Our blog post is intended to help property owners make the correct choice the first time so that any future problems are simply ones of needing maintenance rather than needing remedial action.”

Choosing a tree or trees for a yard is not quite as simple as it may sound, and Steadfast Tree Care's guide starts at the very beginning of the process by asking owners to consider exactly what it is they want from the tree or trees.

Trees get planted for a variety of reasons. Some are desired for shade, some for decorative purposes, and others for privacy. Others may be planted to hide an area within the yard or to hide something that is in a neighbor's yard. Most homeowners neglect to consider what trees would be most fitted to their intended purpose and end up choosing something that is completely unsuitable.

Even when the basic requirements have been considered there may be other factors that need to be considered. For example, how fast a tree grows may affect the choice quite drastically. If shade or privacy is required quickly, then obviously it makes sense to choose a fast-growing tree. Then there is the question of whether the tree needs to be green all year round. If the tree is required for purposes of hiding something, or privacy, then evergreens rather than deciduous trees may prove to be the best choice.

Choosing a tree that will probably last a lifetime needs to be done right the first time because as the article points out, some trees can create literally decades of trouble for a homeowner.

Of course, there are also many times that a homeowner has inherited the problem from a previous owner that made a less than inspired choice. Although it may mean removal at times, there are sometimes other options available, such as transplanting. Steadfast Tree Care also has this covered in an article that can be found at

The company's article on transplantation quite rightly points out that the process needs to start well ahead of the actual physical removal so that the chances of success are maximized. The process of proper root pruning, for instance, needs to be undertaken well in advance. Digging a tree up is incredibly stressful on the plant and this process helps alleviate some of that stress. This in turn helps heighten the chances of a successful transplantation.

Mr. Mallinson had this to say, "Tree shock is a real problem when transplanting. We try to minimize that by not only moving the tree as quickly as possible, but also ensuring that water and nutrients are immediately available once it is moved to its new position. Even with all the recommended actions we suggest, homeowners should still expect to see some evidence of shock."

Steadfast Tree Care offers tree trimming and tree removal services, as well as stump removal. As many homeowners know, cutting a tree down is a relatively straightforward process, but removing a stump is anything but. Steadfast will not only remove the stump but will ensure that the area where the stump was is 100% usable.
