The first step in choosing a large tree is to know the tree’s characteristics, mature size, soil requirements, and the drainage of the planting site. Large trees usually have extensive root systems that will reach out to twice the size of the trees canopy. Large trees planted on the south and eat sides of a house can reduce cooling costs in the summer. Some large shade trees are denser than others. If planting is desired under a large tree try to use a tree that provides filtered shade and not dense shade. There is a good selection of shade, flowering, fast growing, seed producing, deciduous, and evergreen trees that fit the large tree category.
