Planting Trees — Some Basics

Before you buy a tree:tree planting tips

  • Make sure it is suitable for Zone 4. The Miles City area includes some Zone 3 growing conditions, but selecting only trees suitable for planting in Zone 4 is highly advisable. (View zone map)

  • Pick the location where you will be planting the tree and then make sure that the tree will not become destructive to that location. Some tree roots can damage underground pipes, sidewalks and foundations.

Before you plant a tree:

  • Make sure that you have everything you need readily available. Things to consider having on-hand include shovels, rake, hoe, peat moss, fertilizer, tiller, water, wheelbarrow and a tamper.

  • Check to make sure that the location where you will be planting the tree is free of underground wiring and water lines including automatic watering systems, cable TV lines and telephone lines.

  • The best time to plant a tree is in the fall or early spring. Late in the spring, or during the summer months, the heat and dryness will stress the new tree and could well cause it not to survive its first year.
