The Best Trees to Have in a Smaller Garden

Gardens are a place to have a bit of time to relax and get close to nature. One of the most relaxing things that we can be around are trees, but you may think if you have a smaller garden that a tree would not be suitable.

In fact, there are lots of trees that are perfect for small gardens, as long as you care for them well and get a professional such as tree surgeon Gloucester based Geoffrey Urch to come and trim them every so often, it is possible to have a tree in a small space. Here are some of the best trees for smaller gardens…


Crab-apple Tree – This is a great little tree that will put on spectacular displays of blossom for you in the spring and summer, as well as having very pretty little fruits. If you like to encourage wildlife into your garden a crab-apple tree will do just that as birds and squirrels love to feast on the fruits of the tree.

Loquat – As well as being an evergreen tree, these little trees thrive in cities in particular where it tends to be a little warmer, and they don’t take up much space. They enjoy a sheltered position, and some varieties produce flowers.
