What to Know About Planted Trees in the Fall
In case you missed the opportunity to have trees planted in the spring, the fall is still a great season for a variety of trees that will be able to withstand winter’s chill. Labor Day makes for a great target date for the planting. With consistent and frequent watering through Columbus Day, your trees will be fighting their natural tendency to go dormant for the winter, giving them time to establish a solid root system.
However, trees like conifers might not have enough time to grow their roots into the soil. This leaves them vulnerable to winter injury and loss of moisture in their needles during the winter months. Conifers planted in the fall also run the risk of tipping over in high winter winds due to underdeveloped root systems.
The Benefits of Having Trees as Part of Your Landscape
- Large, cared-for trees can do wonders to increase your property value.
- During hot, temperature record-setting summers, trees with large leaves offer tremendous amounts of shade.
- Trees can add a level of natural privacy to an otherwise open back, front, or side yard.
- Different types of trees bring a touch of vibrant color during the fall, as well as attract songbirds during the spring and summer months.
