Considerations When Selecting a New Tree for Your Lawn

Depending on the type of tree you choose, here are some considerations you should keep in mind:

1. Bare Root Tree

As a rule of thumb, check the roots of the tree at the time of purchase. Copious root growth and sporadic small roots are some of the characteristics of a healthy tree. The roots should be moist upon delivery.

2. B&B

B&B stands for balled and burlapped tree. A B&B tree has firm soil ball and trunk tied securely. If you receive a tree with a broken ball, reject it immediately. Also, do not accept any tree with circling roots.

3. Potted Trees

Potted trees are also great choices as you can transfer them from one place to another should you be rearranging your landscaped garden in the future. Make sure to check that the pot does not contain large circling roots. The soil and roots of the potted tree should be tightly joined.
