Tree and Shrub Planting

Planting the right tree or shrub in the right place can make all the difference in the beauty and value of your property, while greatly reducing frustration and maintenance requirements. Some helpful hints and factors to take into consideration after deciding to add new trees and shrubs:

  • Select hardy, pest- and disease-resistant varieties for minimal maintenance
  • Choose plants best suited to your area’s climate zone
  • Determine the attributes (sun exposure, soil type, drainage and rainfall) of the various sites on your property and then select plants that will thrive in these environments
  • Check the plant information tags before purchasing the plant
  • Determine the mature size of the plant before you position it on your property to ensure it has adequate space to grow to full size
  • Ensure the mature plant will be appropriate for your long-term landscape plan
  • Consider native plants which provide habitat for many organisms, conserve water and soil, and are low maintenance
  • Requesting professional guidance if unsure as to whether the tree or shrub is appropriate for your requirements
