Flowering Trees

Trees are an essential part of landscaping projects whether in private residences or apartment and office complexes. Flowering trees are in a class by themselves. They add to the aesthetic value of their surroundings. There are many flowering trees that have flowers during spring and summer and berries and colorful foliage in the fall. Most such trees are low maintenance and only require a decent amount of sunlight and water to blossom beautifully. But if you want to ensure that your garden looks the best through all seasons you must follow a few basic tips.

Pruning is one such step. There are two distinct advantages of pruning. One of course, is that it enhances the ornamental value of the tree. Secondly, it keeps the trees healthy since pruning involves removal of broken, diseased or dead branches. This extends the lifetime of the plant. Also by pruning you can avoid the dangers posed by flowering trees like branches that hang low and might be a hazard to passersby and even your own household members. Fertilizing the tree annually is another good move. Make sure you check your flowering trees for signs of insect infection or disease manifestation. Some good flowering trees you could plant in your yard include eastern rosebud, flowering crabapple, flowering dogwood, forsythia, rhododendron and azaleas. Flowering trees are a perfect complement to a green building by emphasizing it's low impact on the environment.

It is a wise decision to plant a tree that suits the climate of the region you are located in. Next is the size of the tree for this will depend on the space you have available. Most flowering trees are in the small to medium range but there are also some which grow to be larger. Keep in mind the type of color you want. Colors are important in forming an impression in the minds of those who see it. Whites seem to give a more formal look then the pinks and reds.
