How To Plant A Tree Videos Launching Today!

Written by

Happy Arbor Day and Earth Week! This is usually a day (and week, and month) that we hold as many events as possible throughout Utah planting trees with big groups of great volunteers. Since we can't do that kind of event this year due to the current recommendations to curtail the coronavirus, we are working to find ways for families to plant trees together in their yards and at small offerings at parks. As part of that initiative, we're launching a YouTube channel dedicated to trees! The first videos are about how to successfully plant trees in your own yard this spring. This series by our Arborist and Planting Coordinator Ian Peisner, includes a tool safety talk, and a series of videos you can watch that take you through every step of tree planting for success. Check it out by clicking here. We hope it gives you the knowledge you need to plant your own trees for success. If you need help deciding what tree you'd like to plant, check out our current recommended tree list here. Stay tuned for other videos and ways to get involved with TreeUtah!
