Sunny Crutchfield



House and Structures: In this insightful video, ISA Certified Arborist Cory discusses the crucial considerations to bear in mind when deciding on the proximity of planting trees near a house or other structures. The emphasis is majorly on the mature size of the selected plant or tree. Cory mentions that while it’s not a hard rule against planting a large tree near a house, such a decision could impact the maintenance schedule and the overall upkeep of the tree and the structure. He stresses the importance of considering the mature size of the tree before making a decision, illustrating that it might not be a wise choice to plant a 60-foot tree merely 5-10 feet away from your house. Through this discussion, Cory aims to enlighten viewers on smart planting practices, guiding them to make well-informed decisions that will benefit the longevity and health of both their trees and structures.
