Common Tree Planting Mistakes
Proper tree selection and planting is the most important part of developing a healthy, low maintenance landscape. Many of the problems we see in our industry are caused by improper selection, improper planting, or both. Common mistakes include:
Planting trees which will have large mature canopy sizes to structures or other trees, leading to unnecessary trimming costs or removal.
Improperly planting trees leading to stunted growth,scant tree canopies, and premature decline in trees.
Failing to realize the potential root structure of a tree and ending up with underground power, water, or data line disruption
Sometimes a tree is in an unfavorable spot, but it’s not too late to make a change. We can relocate a tree to a better spot, carefully transporting it with the root ball and as much soil as possible intact to its new home. With proper care, the tree can flourish again and you don’t have to lose a nice, mature tree.
