All tree lovers know that trees can be planted year-round. Unlike flowers, bushes, or other plants that require more maintenance, trees are a hearty fare that can survive virtually any season. In some cases, there may be exceptions associated with extreme moisture changes and heavy winds. However, choosing to plant trees throughout the fall versus any other season will allow them to create a stronger root system simply due to the milder climate.
Fall offers more moisture and cooler temperatures, both of which are imperative to seedling tree growth. Also, because there aren’t many obstacles coming from Mother Nature, they’ll be able to grow stronger and deeper into the ground, which will keep them better in place for future weather events.
