How often does my tree need care?

A: The type and frequency of tree care depends on the species, age, location, climate, and other factors that affect the tree’s growth. The first step is to educate yourself about your trees and understand their needs. It is imperative to understand that proper tree care is a life long process, and that planting and caring for a tree is a long-tern commitment, not just a one time deal. Contact your local tree care professional for proper assistance.
