Can you plant a tree?
By Tammy Sons
Trees make some of the best home decorations ever. Surely better than any pink flamingo that can be placed in your yard. Trees come in various sizes from small bushes that barely reach 10 ft to tall monsters than can reach heights of 120 ft plus! They have numerous beauty parts with some having wonderful foliage to some with beautiful flowers. Put planting trees is the easy part. Waiting for them to grow is the hard part. Trees unlike grass and weeds take many years to grow some trees can be full sized in 2 years however some it takes 60 to 70 years for them to reach full size. When you first decide you want a tree you have to decide whether you want it 2 or 3 years old or whether you want to buy a seed for it. If you get a seed you will have to wait much longer and take much more care to get the plant to thrive. With planting a partially grown tree you can cut years of waiting off. Here are the steps to planting it:
- First select your desired tree location.
- Then find a tree that can grow well in your area and that you have the space for and that you like.
- Buy the tree
- Take the tree home and dig a hole twice the size of the trees root ball. Place in fertilizer and insert tree.
- Water immediately.
If you buy a seed all you have to do is place the seed in the ground in the water but takes much longer. A great evergreen that would look good in your yard is the Pitch Pine. Burning Bush is another great and vibrant shrub.
