Tree Planting on a Grand Scale
After having such a great time at Tyler's Arbor Day, we returned to "Rose City" for an impressive planting job with our planting partners at Texas Trees Foundation. This particular job required some road closure work, heavy equipment, and a very tall crane to settle the trees into their new environment.
During the first two years after planting a tree, we recommend the following air temperature guide to aid in determining when to water, remembering to adjust for rainfall. Keep in mind, these parameters are intended as guides, not absolutes:
During the winter, water the tree every two weeks if no rainfall occurs.
60 degrees - once every 10 days
70 degrees - once a week
80 degrees - twice a week
90 degrees & above - three times a week
Trees on this planting day ranged from 4" diameter to 9" diameter and included October Glory Maple, Brandywine Maple, and Merlot Redbud trees. What a colorful addition to the landscape this palette of trees will bring!
