What trees to plant

Bridgie Ryan asked 10 years ago
My lawn is a blank canvas with the exception of two recently planted mature trees – Birch and Beech. I want to begin by planting a series of trees along the west facing perimeter of my garden. Site is exposed, I live in a limestone region and I love trees. Garden centre has recommended, Mountain Ash, Hornbeam, Hawthorn, Alder, Crabapple, and Whitebeam. Your advice as regards the above recommendations would be appreciated.

All the ones you mention are fine, good robust, reliable trees for general garden use.

If it is a large area it is best to repeat some of the tree types, not have too many different kinds.
