Fall Planting

Why planting trees and shrubs in the fall of the year is perfect!

Simply put, the cooler air and warm soil temperatures of autumn make it the best time for new plantings to take hold.

In the fall, many plants and trees are entering a period of dormancy.
Beneath the surface, soil temperatures are still warm, which creates an environment for new root growth. Roots still grow when soil temperatures are as low as 40*F.
The cooler air temperatures and waning sunlight prevent leaf growth. And deciduous trees and shrubs drop leaves.

Without having to use moisture and nutrients for foliage, plants now shift their energy into roots and storing nutrients and resources for the cool months ahead. By spring, the result should be a well-established root system and plants that are better equipped to handle the growth of spring and heat of the summer.
