Why Plant this Fall?     


"Fall is for Planting because...its the only planting season left!"


  Fall is for Planting also because... 

 - planting is a little more flexible

 - plenty of time to soak them in  -

  -plenty of time to get mulch on to hold in moisture for the winter      

- weed growth is slowing down   

- fewer hot and shorter days means slower respiration as the leaves senesce

 - early Fall planting leaves time for trees to  settle in, many begin root growth after getting established on the new site  


Planting With a Purpose

Knowing when, what, where, and how to plant is essential to a tree's life span. And if you want trees in your client's and resident's yards to be assets that continually appreciate in value, there are important tips from ---the International Society of Arboriculture Trees Are Good website--- to keep in mind before, during, and after planting a tree.
