Spring planting season: select the right tree As winter thaws into spring, many homeowners are poised to take advan- tage of prime tree-planting season. Establishing new trees early can aid their growth throughout the year, and help them survive when hot weather arrives. But with so many tree species to choose from, how can homeowners know which trees are best suited for their landscapes? TCIA advises home- owners to consider the fol- lowing factors when select- ing a tree: hardiness (ability of the plant to survive extremes of winter cold and summer heat, and sud- den temperature swings) mature height and spread growth rate above and below ground available space above and below ground aesthetics moisture require- ments for the life of the tree maintenance require- ments for the life of the tree availability at local nurseries omamental effects, such as branching habit, texture and color of bark, flowers, fruit and foliage A professional tree care company can help you determine which tree species perform well in your local area and are suited to your desired plantirlg site. Arborists typ- ically analyze the specific plantklg site to determine the compatibility of the tree to the site. Environmental considera- tions may include: disease and insect problems that may limit your selections the prior use of the planthag site soil conditions, such as poor drainage, high or low pH, and soil nutrition the presence or absence of channelized winds the location of utili- ties, both above and below ground the proximity of the plant to roads, walkways and security lighting Is there enough space to plant a tree? The space available at the specific site and mature tree size are important con- siderations, and addressing these limits will go a long way toward reducing main- tenance costs. Utilities. in particular, should be given a wide berth. If your tree will ~ow to 25 feet or taller, do not plant it under or near overhead power lines. Do not forget the underground utilities; they may need to be serviced at some point, and the tree should never impede this. Call 811 for the national "Call Before You Dig" hot- line to make sure your cho- sen planting site will not hinder utility maintenance. Keep in mind the ground- level utility structures such as transformers and indi- vidual service connections, which also require space to be serviced. Where to plant Community ordinances may restrict planting of trees near power lines, parking strips, street lights, sewers, traffic control signs and signals, sidewalks and property lines. Municipalities may require planting permits for trees planted on city property. City codes often require that trees on city property be maintained by the city, so citizens planting an improper selection can cause problems for them- selves and the municipali- ty.
