Planting Trees

Many area gardeners and homeowners are anxious to begin the planting season and among the most popular plants with which to begin the season are trees. Unfortunately, in too many cases the tree, planted with such high hopes, does not react well to its new home and either dies or has such poor leaf growth that it looks next to dead. Not at all what you wanted. Extensive research has shown that correct planting is the single most important factor in successfully growing trees and the first step is a $10 hole for a $5 tree.  Planting and care guidelines for trees are available at both the gardening information center at the Lucketts Community Center and at the Loudoun Extension Service in Leesburg.
