Tree planting is not a difficult job, but a very important one to get right if your new tree or shrub is to have the best start in life. In this tree planting session, we will look at:

  • Site selection and preparation
  • Guide to planting: handling the plant, planting pits and refilling the planting pit
  • Aftercare: watering, weeding, plant protection and formative pruning

Come along and learn the fundamentals of tree planting and get the chance to plant a tree in the arboretum!
