Commercial Tree Planting
Commercial building owners may require tree and shrub planting services. This may be carried out for functional purposes or simply in compliance with laws that require them to plant a specific number of trees on the property. Commercial tree planting is usually done in parking lots. You have to choose tree species that are suited to survive for the setting of your commercial building. Trees also need sufficient surface area to survive and thrive. A small tree will need at least 25 sq. Feet of exposed soil and large trees will require even more (at least 400 sq. Feet). You have to consider this in commercial tree planting.
Residential Tree Planting
In many cases, residential tree planting is done for personal reasons. But it can also comply with state and federal regulations. Trees have been known to increase the value of a property. Planting trees on your lawn will beautify your landscape and improve the curb appeal of your home. Trees can also improve your physical and mental health. There are important considerations for residential tree planting. For instance, it is more recommended to plant smaller trees on your lawn as this will cost less to plant and maintain. A small tree is also more likely to survive and pose less threat to your building later in the future.
Tree Planting Standards
If you have decided to plant trees, there are federal, local, and state regulations to follow. Not only must you be aware of them for compliance purposes but they also improve the chances of your tree’s survival. For instance, the tree you are planting should have a diameter of two inches or more and must have reaches satisfactory standards before it can be transplanted into the soil. There are also certain considerations for the soil you are planting the tree. The soil should have a PH level of between 5.8 to 7.0 and 5% organic matter.
