The climate, soil conditions and sunshine we get can make a big difference in a tree’s overall health. So choosing a species of indigenous tree is important. They’ve adapted to our environmental conditions, they flower more beautifully, and they naturally change with the seasons. Plus, local trees provide food and natural habitats for the birds, insects and other wildlife.Choosing the right tree
The best times of year to plant are in the Fall after the leaves fall and early Spring before the buds break. The milder temperatures enable roots to get well-established before harsh weather sets in. Early Fall planting naturally results in earlier Spring blooming of flowering trees and plants. And, cool autumn weather helps eliminate pests such as weeds, diseases and insects that can hinder new growth.
Whether newly-planted or fully-mature, all trees can benefit from care that helps them thrive as beautiful and majestic treasures for many years to come. Try these helpful tips for maintaining tree health:
