How to Have the Best Looking Trees in Your Neighborhood

Plant the right tree in the right place. Choose the site and find a tree with characteristics for that site. For example, a Douglas-fir tree should not be planted under powerlines due to it’s height. 

Mulch around the tree to avoid soil compaction and root suffocation. Use a ring of wood chips 2-4 inches deep extending 2 feet out from the base of the tree, keeping the mulch slightly away from the tree trunk. 

Give your trees a drink! Newly planted trees need water regularly each week during the dry season. 

Protect young trees from mowers, weedeaters, and other equipment. 

Leave roots alone. Damage to tree roots is a common cause of tree death in home landscapes. 

Prune according to accepted methods. Hire an arborist when the job is too big. 

If you think your tree is too large, don’t top it! You might be better off cutting the tree down and planting a smaller variety.
