Planting Trees In The Fall
- August 22, 2019
If you are planning to plant trees, choose moderate sized plants that will establish easily; including maple, sycamore, hawthorn and horse chestnut. Pine and spruce should be planted by early October for best results.If you are planting container stock, be sure the plant looks really vibrant and healthy with no off-color or drooping leaves.
To save yourself and the tree, be sure you are fully aware of the tree’s eventual size. Too often, in an attempt to give the planting site a more mature, filled-in look, trees are planted far too close together. As they grow and spread, often growing into and over each other, pruning is necessary to preserve healthy growth. And, the resulting clash of branches can ruin the overall aesthetic appearance of your trees. It makes sense to plant them at the proper distance, one from another, in the first place.
Be sure to plant the tree properly:
