A beautiful landscape with healthy trees and shrubs can add as much as 20% to the value of the property.  Unfortunately the majority of urban trees in the landscape have a life expectancy of 25 – 35 years due to mistakes made at the initial planting of the trees.

Tree planting, which would seem like a fairly straightforward process, is actually quite complex and is where the majority of mistakes that affect the longevity of urban trees are made.  Two of the most common mistakes are planting the wrong tree for the location and improper planting depth, which both limit the productivity and usefulness of the trees in the landscape.
