October: Prime Time for Tree Planting
Truth is, any time the ground isn’t frozen is a good time to plant trees! It’s also true that in our part of the country, October is the BEST time, no matter what type of tree you’re planting.
The key to strong, healthy growth for a tree starts with its root system. By planting in fall, your new trees will have had three full seasons of moist conditions and plenty of time to establish a good strong root system by the time next summer’s growing season arrives.
With the soil most and soft as it is now – especially after the rainy summer we’ve had – digging and planting is as easy as it gets! The cooler temperatures don’t hurt either!
Trees are such a beautiful addition to the landscape – ANY home’s landscape – that it is easy to forget they have practical purposes too. You are probably aware that these oxygen-replenishing wonders improve the environment. But have you thought about how much they can do for the value of your home? Ask any realtor! A beautiful landscape with healthy trees can really make a difference to potential buyers.
Trees can also make gorgeous natural barriers. Plant them for privacy, for wind screens, or just to block off any unwelcome sights. And we don’t have to tell you what an amazing asset they can be to wildlife, providing food, shelter and protection.
