Selecting what species to plant and where to plant it will prevent a large majority of issues down the road. Some Factors to consider are:
- Location of above and below ground utilities, buildings, roads, and other trees.
- The size of tree when it reaches maturity: Will there be enough space? Will roots be an issue?
- Species characteristics: Fruit? Leaves/needles. Thorns? Growth pattern. Disease and storm resistance. Native species?
