Large Tree Types Brevard County

Large trees need large areas for their root systems to spread so they can hold the trees up in a storm or hurricane. Their roots will spread 2-3 times past the end of their branches.

Plant large trees AT LEAST 12 feet from roads, sidewalks and driveways or buckling and damage could occur!

Do not plant large trees in locations that are underneath power lines or too close for the mature spread of the tree.

Large Trees (50+ feet) and well-drained soil
