Choosing the Right Type of Tree and Planting it Properly

It’s important to remember that proper tree care starts when you select a tree that is best suited for the location you plant it in.  What you do to your tree in its first few years of life will affect its shape, strength, and even its lifespan. So proper planting, pruning and watering will determine the health of your tree.
