Properly Planting Trees On a Residential Property
According to research the typical lifespan of a tree planted by homeowners is only 8
years. This is most often due to the faulty planting methods, and poor
placement of the trees in question. It’s important for homeowners to contact a
trusted tree service before planting trees at home for sake of avoiding this
fate. Trees that are planted in bad locations will suffer a variety of issues.
Most notably the problem of growing into opposing plant life or trees. A tree
that grows directly in the path of another will prevent an adequate amount of
sunlight from bathing the tree during essential times of year.
This can lead to the malnutrition of the tree and eventual death. A tree that is weakened from
malnutrition will suffer great losses in the event of a disease. Limbs will be
infected easier, and infestations may find homes where they normally would not.
In fact diseased trees are optimum locations for the egg lying of insects due
to the weakened structure of the trunk and branches. Planting a tree on
residential property is a fantastic idea. However, every homeowner should do
proper research before undertaking such a task.
