Tree Planting Tips to Keep in Mind
Our professionals can help you with this, but in general, keep in mind the following when you’re considering both small and large trees for your yard:
- Is there enough space for the tree to grow?
- Is there enough space once the tree reaches its full height, width, and depth?
- How much sunlight is available for the tree? (Remember: shade-intolerant trees need sunlight to properly grow.)
- Do you want a fast-growing tree or one that develops slowly?
- What’s the purpose of the tree—shade? Improved property value? Beauty? Erosion reduction?
FAQ About Tree Planting and Tree Transplanting
Have a question about tree planting and tree transplanting? See frequently asked questions:
When is the best time to plant my tree?
Typically, the best time to plant is in the spring before the leaves and flowers come out, but some larger trees can be planted in the fall as well.
Should I mulch my tree?
Yes. Mulch retains a lot of moisture, reduces weed competition, protects the tree from decay, and adds nutrient to the soil. About 2 – 4 inches of mulch should suffice. Avoid placing the mulch against the stem of the tree.
Should I fertilize my tree?
Fertilizing a newly planted tree isn’t necessary if you’re planting in an area with good top soil—in fact, it’s generally not recommended in the first year of growth. Over-fertilizing trees can damage them.
How much should I water my tree?
Believe it or not, you can actually overwater a tree, so be careful. Too much water can displace the oxygen in the soil and cause root dieback. If you get less than an inch of rain in a week, be sure to water your tree.
