Fall Tree Planting
Fall is one of our favorite times of the year because it means one thing for us: deciduous trees. We love being able to help folks find the perfect deciduous tree to add to their landscape. And every year when autumn rolls around, we know we’ll have customers anxious to begin planting trees.

Fall is a Perfect Time for Tree Planting
Many think spring is the time for planting, but fall is also a great time for planting trees or shrubs. Why? Once a few frosts have come and gone, you’ll have plants that are dormant and less active, but the soil is still warm enough throughout the winter for root growth. Once spring rolls around, these roots will be ready to take up water. When leaves begin to appear, this means increased roots that can more easily access the water reservoir.
Here are some articles well worth reading about fall tree planting:
