Proper tree planting, installation, and replacement is crucial to the development of safe and healthy trees. Different species of trees require different site conditions, such as soil, light, and water. Size, color, location, growth rate, and resistance to pests and disease are also factors that need to be considered when picking out a new tree. Proper establishment and tree health begins with good quality material and correct soil aeration. There is no need to pay for tree installation from companies that don’t properly remove root packaging, plant trees too deep, or create “mulch volcanoes” which will all lead to long term plant deterioration.
