There is no easier way to enhance the beauty and elegance of a property than by planting trees. Buying trees for your property is an investment in the future, as they only become more beautiful and impressive over time as they grow and age and you will enjoy them for years to come.
However, the first step is to make sure they are planted well so that they are healthy and have a chance to grow. This is where Trio Tree Services comes in. For a FREE appointment with one of our arborists, call (404) 861-3642 today.
When is the Best Time to Plant a Tree?
The best time to plant a tree is during the dormant season, especially in the fall, immediately after the leaves fall, or in the spring before the trees bloom. The key is to make sure the tree has had a chance to establish a healthy root system before trying to develop new growth. Transplanting is stressful for trees, and having a well-established root system makes things a lot easier when you start trying to cope with the summer heat.
It is possible to plant trees during the growing season, but they need proper care and maintenance if they are to thrive. As experienced arborists, we can help prepare the ground and ensure your tree has the best possible start to life.
How to Care for a New Tree?
A newly planted tree requires care because its root system is not yet fully developed. The most important thing is to keep the area around the root ball moist, and you can do this by watering the tree. Applying mulch will help prevent evaporation, moderate soil temperatures, and prevent root damage. If the soil is poor, light fertilization can help, but as long as you keep the soil around your tree’s roots moist, it should grow well enough to be independent in two to three years.
