The Importance of Choosing the Right Trees

I’m a big fan of saving old and chereished trees at all costs. I’m also big on incorporating older trees into a landscape design. Attached is a link to an “ASK MARTHA” column by Martha Stewart in which she writes about her love affair with trees — Something I can really relate to. She discusses picking trees that are appealing to her, as well as those necessary for foliage color and practical functions, such as thos taht break the wind and serve as privacy screening. Below is the story in its entirety – please always remember that trees, especially mature trees, make the best garden focal points and should be saved at all costs.
