Sustainable Tree Planting
Planting trees in a sustainable way is vital if you want to ensure that the tree will grow effectively, safely, and last a long time after it becomes well-established, whether or not someone is always actively tending to it. Tree planting can drastically help landscapes and improve the condition of land, if planted in a sustainable manner.
The first step is to pick an appropriate tree. Do research and try to figure out which variety of tree would do well in the area being targeted. Take into account the soil it requires, the amount of water it would need, and the preferred amount of sunlight for the tree.
When picking the location for the tree to be planted, try to avoid areas that might inhibit the growth of roots. Buildings, concrete slabs, and large boulders can prevent the roots from spreading out and letting the tree adapt to its new environment.
Often times, trees grown in a planter at a nursery will have rounded and compacted roots, due to being in a tight wooden or plastic container. When being transplanted into the Earth, it might help to stake the roots, giving it a bit more structure until they can spread out and dig into the soil over time. After planting the tree, maintain it until it becomes acclimated and well-established in its new location.
