Trees are one of natures natural wonders and a source of joy for so many of us, as well as a source of oxygen for the planet! They create whole eco systems and bring beauty to parts of the world. It is little wonder that so many of us love to be around trees and have trees in our garden – as long as you keep them well looked after and well pruned with the help of someone like this tree surgeon Gloucester based Geoffrey Urch, they are a great addition to a garden.
If you want to add a tree to your garden but don’t have much room, here are some of the smaller trees that are ideal for small gardens…
Japanese Maple – These lovely little trees are easy to care for and really come ablaze with colour in the autumn months. The prefer to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight, you can even grow them in a large tub so are perfect for a courtyard garden.
Crab Apple Tree – Pretty blossoms in the spring and fruits that will attract wildlife, these are perfect all-rounders. There are many varieties to choose from and they fit well into a smaller garden.
Ornamental Cherry Tree – Another tree that is dainty and pretty – perfect for a smaller garden. They give a fantastic display of blossom and are great for the local bee population too. If you are looking for a tree that has it all this is it!
