Planting for the future
Trees grow slow and require proper planting to thrive in our fast paced world. Choosing the best planting site is one of the most important decisions to be made. Species and Sun exposure are also major factors when thinking of planting a tree.
A few key items to remember when planting:
Plant at correct height (planting too deep is a worldwide problem!)
Never plant under or near power/utility lines
Right tree - Right place (GIVE TREES A SPACE TO GROW!) Planting too close to buildings and high traffic locations often lead to tree mutilation (Wrong tree - Wrong place!)
Consult with your local Arborist and /or Nursery to decide what makes the most sense for you and your landscape.
