Summary

This audiobook contains proven steps and strategies on how to plant trees anywhere.

Planting a tree is a lifelong investment. How well this investment grows depends on the type of tree selected and the planting location, the care provided during planting, and the follow-up care after planting. Getting your new tree off to a healthy start will help the tree mature to its full size and ensures it will provide environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its lifetime.

Planting a tree is an easy task, but it takes more preparation and skill than you might think. Many people assume it's so easy that they overlook basic planting techniques, potentially setting their trees up for failure.

All trees have needs, such as specific sunlight and water requirements. An improperly placed tree can grow into a home's foundation, while a tree planted too deep is susceptible to disease and poor health.

So, before you go out and plant that maple tree underneath the power lines, consider the following tree-planting tips.

The actual process of planting a young tree is not difficult or time consuming, but it must be done properly and with care. However, the success of planting will depend on choosing the right species for the site and on providing an environment in which the young trees will thrive.

With a little luck and good timing, sometimes simply sticking a tree in the ground and walking away can be enough for it to survive. But knowing how to plant a tree the right way will ensure success every time.

Trees have been described as the lungs of the earth for good reason. Without them, there would be no life on this planet. That's reason enough to plant as many as we can. But when you learn just how important they are for so many reasons, you begin to understand my passion for trees and why we need more.

So, whether this is your first tree planting or you've planted a forest by now, we're always learning. Knowing how to plant a tree the right way, especially now, considering such unprecedented climate conditions, will ensure your efforts will not be in vain.
