Planting a tree the right way.
If you are planting your first tree or your 200th, join us at 2pm, Tuesday, November 9, (in person or online) to hear arborist David Vaughan explain the proper way to plant a tree. Are you digging a shallow hole, planting high, not staking? Knowledge of proper tree planting has changed a lot in the last decade. Join us as we discuss the challenges of planting container grown trees. We will also discuss the advantages of planting bare root and show you a new way to stake your tree without the use of guy wires.
Containerized trees present many challenges getting them started the right way. This presentation will discuss those challenges and how to correct them at planting. It will also discuss how to prune or not prune your new tree to get it through the first 25 years.
Cost: no charge
