Learn all about finding the right tree for your space with Joshua Smith, horticulture instructor at Diablo Valley Community College.
Why is it important to put the right tree in the right place? Josh will walk you through how to select the best tree for your needs and what factors to consider for choosing the right species of tree for your yard. And once you’re ready to go shopping in a nursery, how do you select the best specimen and what should you look for and what to avoid? Make sure you are setting your tree up for success! Proper site preparation and planting techniques will help you with successful, long-term maintenance in your landscape.
