Homeowners reap great benefits by planting trees or shrubs; however, the benefits don’t stretch just to individuals with a home.
Tree planting for businesses is becoming more and more popular with many enterprises adopting garden-like structures within their company walls.
Plus, tree planting is a great way to help offset carbon emissions and should be adopted worldwide to help in the fight against climate change.
Is tree planting worth it?
If you’re looking to add more value to your home or property, planting trees and shrubs can help enormously. A well-structured layout of trees or shrubs will no doubt enhance the aesthetic of your home while providing privacy and shade to your backyard.
Can I plant a tree in the same spot?
If you recently lost a tree to a fall or disease in your yard, it may be tempting to replant in the vacant space. For the following reasons, this may be a bad idea:
- The fallen tree has stripped the soil of much needed nutrients for a young sapling
- The tree roots are still there and may burden the new tree from spreading its roots
- If the tree was removed because of a disease, pathogens may still lurk in the soil
When should I plant a new tree?
The best time to plant new trees or shrubs is in the spring. This ensures the plant will get the natural sunlight and water it needs to mature in the coming months.
How much does Tree Planting Cost?
The cost of planting a tree will vary depending on the size and type of tree being planted. A large tree over 15 feet or so can cost above two thousand dollars to be planted. However, saplings and smaller trees or shrubs will cost considerably less.
