Tree Planting Tips

 

If you’re looking to “spruce” up your yard this year, now is a great time for tree planting.

Todd Burke, a certified arborist with Dave’s Tree Service, says now that the ground has softened up a bit they’re getting ready to plant trees and shares some tips.

When you’ve decided what kind of tree to plant and where you would like to place it so that it has plenty of space and will get lots of sunlight, Burke recommends calling Digger’s Hotline.

Once you know the spots to avoid you can dig away…but don’t dig too deep.

To be sure the wind doesn’t get the best of your new yard ornament Burke says you can anchor it to the ground with some clothesline-type rope. Another good idea is to place a few inches of mulch around the base of the tree to hold in moisture and keep grass away from the base. Then comes the most important part...

If you’re not sure what kind of tree to plant, Burke says the existing trees in your yard or neighboring plots are the best indicators as to what will thrive.
