Three Trees To Think Twice About Planting

Everyone loves a good tall tree in their yard. Whether for shade or bearing fruit, a nice tree can add so much to a person’s property. But in many cases, the wrong trees can actually take away from other areas of your yard. Here are three trees that you might want to think twice about planting.

Bradford Pear Tree. Bradford Pear Trees look beautiful. Picturesque in the springtime, even. But they have a few fatal deal-breakers for many. The first being the smell. To put it bluntly, these are those trees you’ve heard of that smell like fish. Even if that weren’t the case, their slight leaves go blowing away in windstorms and they leave distinct, thorny seedlings all over the place.

Silver Maple Tree. The mighty Silver Maple Tree has a lot of majesty to it. But that doesn’t much matter when the thick, unruly roots start to tear apart your yard, break through water lines & sidewalks, and start uprooting in bad weather. With so much unpredictability regarding the roots, a Silver Maple Tree has a great chance of not just being your problem, but one that is sure to upset all of the neighbors as well.

Chinese Flame Trees. Beautiful as they are, the Chinese Flame Tree illustrates a great concern that too many people simply don’t think about: seeds. The Chinese Flame Tree has especially light seeds that will blow all over your yard. While other seeds from different trees might honestly be harder to naturally take root and grow, the Chinese Flame Tree has no problem in this area. Left unchecked, these trees will begin to sprout in undesirable areas of your yard. SERIOUSLY left unchecked and your entire yard will become taken over by them, as if it were some kind of Horror film.
