Where to Plant my Tree Seedlings ?

Updated: Jun 23

Make sure the location you select to plant your tree seedlings has the right level of sunlight and moisture for your seedling species. 

Is there an opening in the canopy sufficient for your seedling to get the sunlight that it requires? Evaluate the soil - does the area hold moisture or is it well-drained? Does the soil seem to have more clay or is it fairly loose? Review species requirements on our website for more information about the needs of your tree.

And, consider the “microsite” or the exact spot selected for your seedling.  How will rain, snow accumulation, wind and other factors affect the seedling in that particular location? 

Keep in mind, trees will grow well where they can compete well.  Pay attention to what else is growing nearby which might eventually out-compete the seedling you wish to plant.
