Fall is a great time of year for planting trees. But before you plant – PLAN. In choosing a tree, make sure the tree is recommended for our area and that the mature size has the right characteristics for the result you want. Plant it such that in 10-20 years, it’s not blocking a sidewalk or too close to your house. Look up and make sure there are no power lines above. A wise gardener is an even wiser planner.
