Trees are the Answer…

…to many landscape challenges. But often planting trees come with a lot of questions, too. Paul Ries, Oregon’s urban forester, answers the most frequently asked questions about tree planting in the urban environment, touching on such things as tree staking, storm damaged trees and tree pruning. He also provides links to resources for more in depth information on each question.
