Tree Planting Where You Live
Now, we all know trees are good. Trees can help guard against weather elements, improve air quality, create nice aesthetics, and lots more. However, the wrong tree or a tree planted incorrectly won’t help you or your home all that much - worse, you’ve just wasted a tree seedling or seed. To get the most out of tree planting follow these tips:
Look around your neighborhood and city - which trees thrive best? Which trees are plentiful? Trees that are local to the area almost always work better than imported trees. In fact, if you plant trees from other areas they can even create pollen issues and introduce problems into the local environment.
