Trees play an essential part in giving us a serene environment with clean oxygen air, in cooling the environment and preventing soil erosion not forgetting they also provide a natural habitat for wildlife. Apart from all these, trees make our home and yard beautiful. For lovers of serene environment, the importance of trees becomes a matter of life and living in a natural setting. They also help in adding property value to the homeowner. Planting trees to many may seem like just digging up a hole and setting the tree root in the hole then filling back the soil and that’s it. Apparently, this not the case since there is a guide process to follow for the tree to grow and mature well, even for the next generation to enjoy its benefits.
Tips to consider
Before planting consider the climate of which trees grow best on moderate temperature and rainfall so the roots anchor well. The neighboring surrounding like the drainage system should be considered since you do not want to plant which will later die because of the sewage water. In addition, the slope of the area and erosion are some of the factors not to overlook. However, to plant a tree, you will need a shovel, a tape measure, and a garden hose and here is how to go about.
First, mark the ground on where to plan the tree. Then measure the height of the root ball, and then dig a hole that is not too deep to allow oxygen circulation. It should not be too narrow since the root structure will not have room for expansion hence they will not be able to find nutrients for nourishment and to hold on the ground firmly. On poorly drained soils always, avoid glazing that occurs on the sides and the bottom of the hole since a barrier is usually formed making water difficult to pass to the root. Then check for any metal or plastics or any burlap surrounding the ball of soil and the roots and if any cut away completely. If the roots are so compressed use, fingers or a blunt object to tease the fine roots from the densely packed soil and spread them. Seat the tree on the hole and backfill the hole with the original soil and avoid compressing with your feet but gently press with your hands. Then set up the drip irrigation bags since you do not want your tree lacking water, which contributes much to its growth.
To ensure and boost the growth of the tree, you can add fertilizers on the planting hole and around the planting hole to promote root expansion and root establishment. Other component like the Mycorrhizal Fungi can be used to help eliminate the damaging fungi on the roots and to establish the root system growth. With all these guidelines, you can now plant many trees of your choice to make your yard beautiful and create a healthy serene environment.
