Growing trees can be easy and rewarding if you know what to do. Choosing what tree you want is completely up to you. No matter what kind of trees or what level of growth it is at I can give you some tips that can help keep it alive and well. Mulching is key to keeping your tree moist and protected. Mulching around a young tree will keep it moist to grow during its first years. Mulching around a tree that is already rooted keeps it protected and strong. Young trees often need support to keep them upright and growing correctly. Staking young trees can solve this problem, however, be careful how you stake the tree as you can accidentally injure or kill it if done improperly. Also, make sure to keep mature trees pruned and watch for dying or broken branches. For the first two years trees need to be kept moist. Check the soil every day to every other day and ensure the soil is moist, not soggy. Overall trees need mulch, moist soil, support, and occasional pruning to help them thrive.
