The 5 Best Trees to Plant in Your Garden

Did you know that planting trees in your garden can actually add a lot of value to your property? Even the smallest yard can benefit enormously from a tree or two. Plus, in the time when city gardens continue to shrink, the best choice is to make your garden a lovely paradise-like getaway full of shade and pleasant scents.

However, considering the sub-tropical humid climate in the Queensland region, you must choose wisely when it comes to the type of tree you want to plant. Some trees are suitable for this climate, some are not.

Hence, the best thing to do is contact TPS (Trees, Palms, and Sumps) Tree Lopping – one of the best tree service company in the Brisbane, Redlands, Logan, and the Gold Coast area – and ask for their professional help. An experienced and qualified arborist will then offer advice on which trees you should plant in your garden.

So, regardless of the reason why you want to plant trees in your garden, whether for shade or to give your garden a lush, evergreen look, here’s a list of the best 5 trees to plant near your house:

  1. Elaeocarpus Eumundi Tree

If you are looking for a low maintenance tree, the Eumundi is the ideal choice for you. Being native to Queensland, it can grow well in this coastal climate. It is also usually used for aesthetic reasons thanks to its dense foliage. In urban areas, it can reach 5-10 meters in height.

  1. Foxtail Palm

Here’s one that’s perfect for those who prefer a more tropical feel. But, can you guess how it got its name? Namely, this palm type is called a foxtail palm due to its unique bushy fronds. And, arborists usually recommend it around pools or similar paved areas. A foxtail palm can grow up to a height of 15 meters.

  1. Tuckeroo Tree

If you live around the coast, you’ve already seen these trees used as street trees which usually reach 8-15 meters in height. They are easily maintained, capable of enduring difficult conditions, and almost never affected by diseases or pests. All of these features, make the Tuckeroo tree a perfect option for your garden.

  1. Lilly Pilly Tree

The name itself sounds appealing, but this Queensland native tree is actually more eye-catching. What’s more, you can plant it as a single tree or use it to form a hedge by planting multiple trees. And, you can easily shape it into different forms which is best done by a professional arborist.

  1. Bottlebrush Tree

Last but definitely not least, here’s one for all of the wildlife lovers. Also known as the Callistemon tree, the Bottlebrush is a small tree that grows a great variety of colourful flowers. And, since it is a flowering tree it means that it attracts all sorts of birds and wildlife. Plus, it can be managed as a hedge, shrub, or a single tree.

So, whatever choice you make, you will definitely beautify your garden and transform it into a nice-looking, peaceful, and welcoming place. Just remember to call the TPS Tree Lopping tree service company, get professional advice from a well-experienced arborist, and enjoy the benefits of using expert tree services.
