RICHMOND HILL, Ontario - Oct. 17, 2019 - PRLog -- Trees make a lovely addition to any property. You may want to add fruit-bearing trees to your garden, or you may simply want to add trees to increase the aesthetics of your property. Whatever the reason, they offer a wealth of benefits. Trees can help to reduce heating bills by deflecting the wind in the winter and lower energy bills in the summer by providing shade. Homes with trees also have a higher market value than those without. The environment also gets a boost by offering a natural home for animals while increasing the oxygen levels at the same time. One thing is for certain, adding a tree or two to your property is a great way to bring a host of benefits to your property.

The Proper Way to Plant a Tree

Now that you have decided to plant some trees, it is important that you go about it in the proper fashion. Trees are living things and can suffer or die if they are not transported and planted correctly. If you are in doubt, you can always call the professional arborists here at Five Star Tree Services to help with your tree planting.

Planting Your Tree

The first thing you should do is create a wide hole that surrounds the trunk of the tree. Do a perk test on the drainage of the area surrounding the tree. Next, place the root ball into the hole and then cover the whole area with milled soil. Water the soil lightly to help it settle and then add mulch over the soil.

According to the majority trained of arborists, most trees are planted too deep. The root ball is placed too far underground which can cause the roots to choke and the tree to become malnutrition. On the other hand, an equal number of trees are planted too firmly which prevents the soil from breathing. Tightly packed soil tends to stay wet and can hinder tree growth.
