Planting Trees by the House

            I run across this a lot, a tree growing too close to the house.

            Spring time is planting time; and planting time is when the planted thing is as small as it’s going to be when coming to live at your place.
            We lose a little perspective when we set this little whip, or 1” diameter trunked tree in the location in which we want it. We set it down, take a few steps back, look it over, then walk back and move it a couple feet closer to the house.
            The truth is you should have moved it a couple feet farther from the house.
            Please read the tag that hangs from the little tree you are putting into your “two door spec” car; it will someday produce enough lumber to house 20 of your little roadsters.
            If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at or post a comment on this Blog. And like us on Facebook at Niemeyer Landscaping. For more Landscape and garden info and pictures on the subject check us out at
