Tree planting sounds simple. But in reality they are several considerations to take into account. Start by thinking long term. A tree will most like last longer than the one doing the planting so you could say it will exert its' influence on your propery for a lifetime.
he big question is "what kind of tree should you plant?" With this in mind here are some other questions that need to be addressed:
Why are you planting the tree(s)? You may have several reasons. Do you want it to provide shade, privacy or act as a windbreak barrier? How about a tree that provides beauty, fruit or seasonal colors etc. etc.
Next consideration is the planting site. What size of a tree do you have in mind... small, medium or large and is the size of the site appropriate? Are there any underground electrical cables or electrical wires overhead in the vicinity? What about other utilities such as underground natural gas lines or telephone lines? Are there driveways, walkways or patios that need to be considered? How about any other trees or flower beds nearby?
Are you aware of the soil conditions that exist on your planting site? What soil depth. Is the soil compacted. Do you have good drainage? Is the soil fertile or infertile?
Have you given any thought to how you will maintain the tree? Until the tree has established itself it needs to be watered, fertilized and pruned. Do you want to do it yourself or hire a company like ours to do it for you?
