Well being a total beginner there is a whole lot of info you need to know, and hard to answer if you are not sure what you want to ask.

Start by doing some research into that will apply to most any type of tree you might have. This might include soil conditions, watering procedures and feeding needs. After you are familiar with that look into species that are native to your area. These will be better able to thrive under the conditions that you will have.

Once you've looked into these things you can ask more specific questions such as out of species x, y, or z, which might be the most appropriate, or get help understanding things you might not have understood.
