Planting a Tree is Simple, Right?

Planting trees seems like one of those no-brainer ideas. It’s one of the simplest ways an individual can help themselves and the environment. Trees give us all kinds of environmental and economic benefits, not to mention all the good things they do for our physical and emotional well-being (studies have proven it).

So, planting a tree is an easy decision to make, but is it so easy to carry out?

For the most part, yes. However, there are some important things to consider before you head off to the local nursery. If you don’t you may have major regret later, not to mention all kinds of problems with your tree as it grows up.

Luckily, Purdue University Extension is here to help. They have produced two short videos that go through the finer points of tree selection and planting. They’re easy to understand and will help you make the most out of your tree purchase. Click on the videos below to check them out.
