Planting Trees in the Fall
Planting trees in the fall when there’s a reduced chance of drought or the scorching sun damaging newly planted, fragile trees. Plus, the chilly temps help inspire new root growth. Since trees center on growing new roots in fall, planting new trees now aids them in having sturdier roots.
While fall is usually best for planting trees, our Rochester arborists are going to provide you with some information. Learn the perfect time of year to plant various types of trees.
Planting a New Tree
Plant your new tree as soon as you’re able to for its best chance of surviving. Or else, place it in a dark, cool place that’s nowhere near direct sunlight or wind. Also, keep the roots moist to encourage growth.
Before you start digging, call your utility company to make sure there are no wires or pipes nearby.
Pay very close attention when placing the tree near the root flare. Putting the root flare too deep is a substantial tree-planting error.
Follow these suggestions to bring beautiful and healthy trees to your yard!
