Planting a tree is a long term investment. There are many important factors to consider when establishing a plan for planting.These include selecting species, location and following up with proper planting techniques.
When selecting a tree it is also important to understand genetic growth patterns inherent to the species. The height and width of a mature tree will determine if the desired location is suitable for the life of the tree. Presence of power lines, structures, and underground utilities must all be considered. Poor placement requires aggressive pruning to accommodate for limited space which results in the overall decline of the tree.
When the right species and location are determined, the planting depth, nursery stock quality, and soil and hole preparation are all key to your tree’s establishment. Recommended planting times in our region are during dormancy which is late fall and winter. For recommendations and installation specific to your property please contact TreeWeaver for a consultation.
