The long term health of a tree is mostly due to the care it receives in the first year after planting. If mistakes are made in the beginning of a tree’s life it is very difficult to make up for them later on in its life. Caring for newly planted trees properly will help ensure your tree will be around for years to come. There are many things that should be avoided while caring for newly planted trees. These include staking and fertilizing, while soil testing, mulching and watering are all beneficial for trees. Pruning can be helpful but only to fix structural flaws, as the tree needs leaves to photosynthesize. Removing too many branches and leaves can hinder the trees growth. These are general guidelines. A tree service can help you determine the best methods for caring for your specific trees.
