Summer is on its way, and we all know that it is the best time to plant trees. Trees are such beautiful creations, and they give us a lot of benefits ranging from aesthetics to clean air. Life without trees is not life at all. However, it is essential to choose the right tree to plant in your yard because not all trees are ideal for landscape planting. When trying to decide what tree to plant in your yard, avoid these eight trees to avoid the hassle or trouble they can cause. They can require excessive tree trimming and even premature removals due to their problematic nature.
Mimosa trees may look beautiful because of their bright pink flowers, but they can be dangerous as they are beautiful. They have weak structures that make them vulnerable to storms. Also, they produce unwanted seedlings that can grow in unwanted places, so this makes them unideal for your lawn.

However, this growth can be a safety hazard when strong winds hit them in their brittle form.

This is another fast-growing tree with excellent shade and bears fruit. Sadly, these are the same reasons you should not plant them in your yard.

Bradford pear was brought from China about a century ago, but it eventually lost its popularity among landscapers because, like mimosa trees, Bradford pears are vulnerable to winds. When the tree matures, it tends to split and become fragile which can be a serious hazard to your property.
If you have someone in the family who has an allergy, this tree is not ideal in your property. Its pollen can trigger severe seasonal allergies which became a problem in the south-central U.S. If you want a bushy tree in your yard, plant other trees but mountain cedar.
Willows are famous for their drooping branches. Only a few people know that they need plenty of water to stay healthy. They will search for water and will expand their roots to look for it. This can damage sewage pipes and compete with other plants for water. Also, they can only live for 30 years.
Although this tree doesn't require much maintenance, they can grow excessively tall and be vulnerable in a storm. They can also easily dry in the center meaning they can be a fire hazard when it is the dry season.
