Firstly, whatever you plant, you’d be best to do this in autumn as planting and keeping the plants alive in the height of summer is a big challenge and hard on the plants. The type of tree you choose to plant is also determined by the soil and climate conditions. It would be a good idea to have a look at neighbouring properties to see what grows well in your area and talk to other locals. You need to take into account the width you can cope with near the driveway, and whether or not the trees will need to be pruned – there is little point having a really wide tree that will need to be pruned to keep the driveway clear. However, some suggestions are willows and poplar, alders, ash, chestnut, elm, honey locust and plane trees.
