Gardening in the Mountains presents:
Proper Planting–Trees and Shrubs
Properly planting trees and shrubs helps them establish early and contributes to long and healthy lives. Questions about soils and amendments, hole size and depth, back fill and whether to stake and wrap the trunk can be site specific and are not always easily answered. Join Barbara Fair as she shows proper planting techniques for trees and shrubs and how to recognize problems that may develop years later when trees are not planted correctly.
Barbara Fair’s professional and research expertise is in arboriculture – the study of trees. She works with green industry professionals and others throughout NC to educate and promote research-based information regarding plant selection, installation and maintenance to ensure the development of long-lived, healthy landscapes.
