Suburban Homesteading-Tree Planting

Tree planting is a skill; it’s not just a matter of “green side up.” You can control many factors, but if you miss some of the most important, it could imperil the long-term success of the tree.  In addition, proper pruning is a skill that enhances the beauty of almost any landscape tree, while improper pruning can ruin or greatly reduce its landscape potential and health.  Planting and pruning, like any other skill, requires knowing what you are doing to achieve success. Come learn about proper planting and pruning techniques and some of the most common mistakes made.
