Where to plant a tree

When planting these are few questions you should ask and which LWTreecare are happy to offer advice on.


Are there any features you want to make the most of?

This could include existing features, for example views or ponds, or ones you want to create, like open glades, orchards or copses of special trees. Establishing this will help you design the planting plan.

How will you access your trees?

Can you walk around the site or do you need access for a vehicle (important if you are planning to coppice or harvest the trees)?

Any potential risks?

Are there overhead power lines or underground services on your site? Rabbits or deer are also a hazard as they enjoy nibbling away at young trees and can kill them. If you have them on site, you will need tree guards to protect your trees while they establish.
