Use of Different Tree Species
Planting the right tree in the right place makes all the difference
in the care of the tree and the usefulness of the tree. Trees can
only remain useful for as long as they are healthy and alive. Therefore,
trees should not be planted where they cannot live or will interfere
with power lines or buildings. Trees should not be planted where
they cannot survive cold winters or hot summers as this will only
negate the benefit and cost of the tree.
Trees are used in a variety of settings for several reasons. Some
are used as stream buffers, shade, beautification, etc. Below you
will find a partial listing of trees taken from the Mississippi
Urban and Community Forestry Management Manual and their corresponding
usefulness as well as the setting for which they are most suitable.
