Tree Planting Tips
2.PICKING— Tree selection to suit the width of the road and the requirement of shade or flowers or both.
1. Before pruning ,we should try to train the branch by bending it away from obstructions like overhead wires etc and made to remain in that posture by means of bent splints made of steel. After a few months the branch will retain the desired shape even if the stints are removed This is possible only when the tree is young and the branch tender. This is the BEST.
3. Very often the cost of tree guards makes the people loose their enthusiasm to plant trees. But this can be overcome by selecting trees and shrubs which will not be grazed by cattle and hence do not need tree guards.
