Tree Care 101

Caring for your trees, especially during the first three years of its life, is an important part of building a sustainable urban forest. Trees growing in an urban environment face challenges that trees in their natural setting would not.

Follow our best practices to plant your tree. Learn about hole prep, root balls, staking, soil and more. 

Learn proper techniques of DEEP ROOT WATERING, and its benefits for the first 5 years of your tree's life.

Check out our PRUNING TECHNIQUES and steps for young trees. For mature trees, we recommend using a certified arborist.
