Thinking about planting a new tree? Now’s the time

September is a great time to plant trees and shrubs. It is cool enough to prevent heat stress on the plants, and the soil is warm enough to promote rapid root development before heavy frosts at the end of October.

When planting a tree or shrub, the hole needs to be only as deep as the root ball that will be placed in it. The soil can be loosened deeper and wider as well — up to three times as wide as the root ball.
