Step 3: Select a Compatible Tree
The Central Florida Tree guide provides in-depth information on trees appropriate for planting in Central Florida. Match the characteristics of your location with a tree that meets your purpose.
Consider the mature height and spread of the tree you select. If your location is limited by space, soil type, or special circumstances, select a species that will overcome that limitation. Your purpose, the planting site and the tree species must all be compatible. If you’re having trouble choosing which tree to plant, consult with experts. Contract the University of Florida extension agent in your county, a local arborist, nurseryman or qualified professional. To get tree ideas, visit a nursery or public park.
