Trees Are Good! This episode focuses on key aspects of selecting, planting, and pruning newly planted shade trees for your landscape project. Your hosts Charles and Kate Sadler share their visits to premiere national tree growers in the Portland, Oregon region. Considering the mature size and shape of the tree you plant has lasting implications for the success of your landscape. We discuss practical tips including structural pruning at planting time and evaluating soil conditions and available irrigation. Visit kinggardeninc on Instagram for images from our nursery visits.
