Often we think trees will grow on their own during our travels through hills, mountains and local parks. But a lot of care goes into our native trees grown locally in our yards and public places.
For example, wet conditions in your yards may not work for any tree. A tree not suitable for wet soils can get disease or slow down it’s growth over time. The correct trees need to be placed in areas where water accumulates on your property.
Here are some examples: River Birch, Willow, Red Maples, Serviceberry, Green Ash, Sweetgum, Sweetbay Magnolia and Pin Oak are some examples of trees that will tolerate wet soils and can be beneficial to the environment.
So take advantage of these trees if you seem to have wet soils and watch then thrive with wet conditions.
