Choose the right tree
Before you plant any trees, be sure you have done your research and spoken with industry professionals to ensure the tree you are about to plant will best suit its environment.
Find a healthy specimen
If you have a decision on the right tree for your home or business, be sure to select a healthy specimen that has every chance of survival.
Avoid trees that are root bound, diseased or have parts that are dehydrated or dying.
Be sure you give the tree every chance of survival by planting as per the nurseries instructions. Different trees thrive in different soil conditions so it is important to give it the best start and water it in well once planted.
All living things need water to survive and trees are no different. Depending on the species of tree will determine how much and how often it should be watered to help it thrive.
Once the tree is planted, add a good layer of mulch to ensure vital moisture is retained, weeds are reduced and nutrients are able to make their way to roots of the tree.
Always cut back to a lateral branch to help prevent stem decay and misdirected growth. Incorrect pruning techniques can result in the tree becoming weakened and fragile.
Watch for pests and diseases
Trees can be susceptible to pests and diseases that can weaken the tree and eventually cause it to die. Be sure to regularly check your trees and treat if you notice a pest infestation or disease.
