15 Types of Trees to NEVER Have in a Front or Backyard


One of the benefits to homesteading or setting up a survival bug-out location is that you in many respects can “write your own ticket” in terms of what you want on your property and what you do not want.

In fact, the planning part of either is over half the fun!

You can map out garden areas, alternative energy plants, and schematics for everything from water and food storage to how you want to manage natural resources like trees.

That brings up the types of trees you do not want to have on your property, or at least the types of trees you want to keep at a minimum.

Trees provide shade and can be harvested for wood, but there are some trees that are best left alone, particularly when planning our landscape layout.

Check out the next page to see what they are.

    I’ll stick with hickory, birch, and sugar maple. At least their products can be used for bartering and would be marginally profitable, if done correctly.

    Black walnuts are delicious and there are many plants that grow near them. They are hardy in cold weather climates. You just need to have enough space to keep them away from other plants that cannot tolerate the toxins in its roots.

    I would think attracting silk worms would be a good idea for a survivalist. Both for home use and barter.
