Trees and plants play a vital role in our lives. Since the beginning, trees have furnished us with two of life’s essentials, food and oxygen. Their value continues to increase, and more benefits of trees are being discovered as their role expands to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyles. Our streets, parks, playgrounds and backyards are lined with trees that create a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment. They also preserve warmth by providing a screen from harsh wind.

Climate plays the most important role in deciding when to plant the trees. We have always thought that spring is the best season to plant trees and plants. Surprisingly, fall is the perfect time to work on landscaping, and planting trees and crops. The best time to plant is from April to October. The container grown plants are best planted in this season as they will need less watering as compared to the ones planted in spring or summer. Moreover, plants are of different types: dormant, deciduous and evergreen. On the basis of their type, different techniques are opted to plant the trees.

Planting dormant trees

When the trees are in their dormant phase, handling them id said to be least disruptive. Therefore, it is advisable to plant them in the dormant period. Trees usually become dormant in the autumn season.

Planting deciduous trees

Deciduous trees enter dormancy with falling of the leaves. So, when the leaves of deciduous plants start falling, their dormant period starts. Also, when the buds unfurl in the spring season, the deciduous trees are leaving their dormancy. Hence, deciduous trees should be planted in the autumn season.

Planting evergreen trees

Evergreen plants are least risky to plant. They can be planted in the early autumn season or the later part of spring season.

The weather should be noted down during planting of the trees. Intense heat is an enemy while planting new saplings. The atmosphere becomes heated up and dries, so it is advisable not to plant saplings in the summer season. Winter season is also very harmful to planting trees as the temperature goes freezing in such cold weather, and the roots won’t get desired sunlight.
