Ways On How To Plant A Tree
Tree planting won’t be so hard after all, we just have to get rid of the common mistakes that we usually do during the tree planting session. In order to ensure that the tree you are planting will grow, it is important to know that you shouldn’t pant your tree on a burrow which is too deep since no amount of oxygen can enter the roots. The roots of the tree gives the tree nourishment, and it also serves as an anchor to the tree, however, the roots won’t be effective if the burrow is not wide enough since the roots cannot spread freely. You have to keep in mind that you should not transplant a tree deeper than its original container soil. The holes width needs to be no less than 3 times the width of the container, the root ball, or the spread of the roots on a bare root tree. If you bought a plant wrapped in a ball or burlap and you still haven’t planted it yet, you may keep it in an area with shade, you just have to see to it that the root section of the plants remains moisturized. Lifting the tree with its ball instead of its trunk is the proper way to do in lifting a tree.
It is highly advisable to cut away all the burlap of the tree especially if it is made up of plastic or synthetic, however, if the burlap is natural, then you may pull it back off. You will also need to remove all string or twine. Once the tree is placed in the excavation start adding your back-fill soil such as compost, topsoil, or peat moss, around the tree only to just under the root ball to allow settling. Be sure not to pack down the back-fill, this may prevent any water from reaching the roots and the roots will be unable to expand out as they should.
Tress which are placed in container are beneficial when it comes to saving time, however, there is no assurance that the plant will last long since it is placed inside the container, thus, it has high chances of drying up and heating up quickly. The burlap tree or ball tree probably has the same method of planting to others. It is advisable to remove the side part of the container and leave its bottom part especially if it is made up of fiber, however, if it is made up of plastic or metal, then it is best to remove the whole container. Check the roots after removing from the container; if they seem to be root-bound use your fingers to loosen the roots and spread them out.A 10-Point Plan for Services (Without Being Overwhelmed)
