The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now. - Proverb
The trees and shrubs we plant now have the potential to outlive us. It is important to practice proper care and maintenance, starting from the time they are planted, so that generations to come may enjoy safe and healthy trees. Whether you're seeking a replacement or adding to a landscape, consult with an Almstead arborist to find the right tree for your location and ensure that it's planted correctly.
We say a lot in the arboriculture industry that the best way to care for tree injuries is to prevent them from happening at all. Proper selection, placement and planting are three of the most important factors one should consider when planning the installation of a new tree. Choosing a non-native tree or a site with improper soil conditions or inadequate space for root and crown growth can lead to the premature death of a newly planted tree or shrub.
