The correct tree needs to be selected for the location to ensure success.  There are many factors to evaluate such as: What are the characteristics of soil where the tree will be planted?  What is the purpose of the tree?  Will the mature tree fit the space?  The speaker will guide you through the entire procedure.

  •  How is a quality specimen selected? Learn environment traits which offer clues to the tree’s health.
  •  What is the correct method for planting a tree? A step by step review of what to do and not do will be shared.
  •  The tree is in the ground, now what? Learn about watering, pruning, mulching, etc until the tree is established. Long term tree maintenance will also be discussed.
