Five Key Ingredients to Successful Tree Planting

  • Source high quality trees - 7-15 gallon trees are optimal for volunteer planting, no circling roots
  • Right tree, right place - carefully plan tree planting locations, partner with local experts
  • Make it FUN - organize to make it easy for sign up and show up
  • Teach volunteers - use an arborist to demo and supervise proper planting
  • Tree stewardship - water the trees routinely after planting and plan for long-term care
