Why Some Trees Don’t Survive
Planting trees on our property will not just improve the look of our garden, but it can increase its value once you decide to sell it. However, there are instances when the trees you planted died and just did not survive. Here are some reasons why your trees aren’t surviving:
Planting the wrong trees. All trees are not created equal. Some species may not be just right for your property as some are better suited to particular areas. Before you decide you want a particular fruit-bearing tree on your property conducts a quick research first. You can ask your arborist about your tree choices and if they see that your tree choice is wrong, they can provide you recommendations of what is suitable in your area.
Incompatible location. Trees can have a problem in growing when the location is too hostile for them. For instance, if the land is not providing enough moisture or if it has too much, or if the tree was planted at the wrong levels and soil which can make the tree suffer. Make sure that the soil matches the tree. At best, your specialist can conduct a soil test to give you the perfect place for your chosen plant.
Not properly monitoring them. Trees require your constant attention, especially the young ones. If you fail to take care of them properly, they won’t be able to grow to their full potential. Make sure to check the stability of the tree and the soil’s condition, and do not forget to check for possible infections or insects pestering your tree.
