Hi John,

Since you are in the US and this site is in the UK, I would suggest that you ask here. My personal opinion would be to have a diverse age group so that the younger will replace the older ones when they have lived out their lives. Too often I see wooded lots that have been cleared of all young saplings and most of the trees that are left are the same age.

These sites will be VERY helpful about protecting the ones you keep from being damaged by construction.
