The popularity of green spaces and the growing concern of citizens to enhance the quality of their environment bring many of them to identify the tree as the first factor to improve urban landscape. Besides adding a touch of beauty to our surroundings, the tree gives us many advantages: shade, intimacy, a higher value of our property and shelter and food for the birds. Further more, the tree also contributes to the health of our planet. It cleans the air by manufacturing oxygen, by storing carbon and by recycling the humidity of the atmosphere.
For example, thanks to photosynthesis, a broad-leaved tree yearly absorbs 2 to 5 tons of carbonic acid gas and produces up to 100 kilos of oxygen. Finally, the tree helps to prevent the erosion of soil, modify the temperature and act as a wind barrier.
In brief, planting a tree is not only a nice thing to do but also a personal way of improving Your environment.
Time for planning
The biological needs of a tree, its form and its height at maturity, and its function in your landscaping make it possible to determine the best species to plant on a given site. When this stage is reached, it is necessary for you to think of its maintenance. This is when the specialists at Experts Network NUTRITE become your best ally to ensure the full health of Your tree. The tree will be there for generations to enjoy; this is why it is important to imagine the space it will occupy in 10 years. When we think of all the advantages that you get in a tree, it is a wise decision to call upon the professionals of Experts Network NUTRITE.
Stages of plantation
- If you buy a tree in a container, it should be kept in its pot until the moment to plant it. In the case of a tree with naked roots, avoid exposing the roots to the sun or the wind.
- Dig a hole twice the width of the container or the rootball, with the same depth.
- The quality of soil in the hole must be damp without being wet.
A tree also contributes to the health of our planet.
Prendre soin de son arbre
- If your ground makes it possible for water to drain easily, abundantly water the tree twice per week for the first two or three months and weekly thereafter for the first year. Make sure that the roots never dry.
- If Your ground contains a lot of clay, water a little less.
- Put a tutor in order to protect it from the winds. Remove it at the end of approximately two years.
- Be aware that Your tree will need fertili-zers to develop and stay healthy. Once again, Your Experts Network NUTRITE specialist is able to advise you on how to nourish Your tree.
