Planting Tree/s Tips


Different trees thrive at different locations depending on the soil of sun exposure.

It is important to understand the type of tree you are planting, its preferred environment, and the root type.  To plant a tree, first, dig a hole that is two to three times wider than the root ball and the same depth as the root ball.  Remove any metal wiring and burlap that is holding the root ball. Loosen the soil around the root ball with a shovel to allow the roots to expand in their new home.  Remember to water it. 

For large trees, we recommend contacting a certified arborist to ensure proper planting location and steps.
