Place to Plant

Choosing a Place to Plant

The basic rule of thumb is: Right Tree, Right Place. You do not want a tall tree under power lines, and you do not want a fat tree in a skinny space. Before you plant, always look up. If you see power lines or anything overhead, you need to pick a tree that won’t grow tall (see Step 2). After looking up, look around to ensure the tree you choose will fit in the space when it’s full-grown. If you’re not sure how big the tree will get, ask the nursery staff.
