DEFERRED TREE PLANTING BEGINS MAY 1ST, 2019
It may seem strange for Urban Forestry to ask you not to plant trees when the weather is so nice, but there is a good reason! Trees planted during hot, dry weather are less likely to survive. During these warmer months the newly planted tree is working overtime trying to establish itself in its new environment and growing new roots while experiencing limited water. However in fall, water requirements are lower, rainfall is more abundant, the temperature is cooler and roots grow best in cooler soils. The cooler temperatures allow the trees to focus energy on growing roots and becoming better established prior to spending energy on growing new leaves.
Remember to mark your calendars to plant your new tree beginning October 2nd, 2019!
