Q: How do I choose a good tree?

 

ANSWER:

There are 3 things to keep in mind when selecting a tree: Roots, Injuries, and Form (RIF).

A high-quality tree will have:

  • - Enough sound roots to support healthy growth
  • - A trunk free of mechanical wounds
  • - No wounds from incorrect pruning
  • - A strong form with well-spaced, firmly attached branches

- A low-quality tree will have one or more of these problems present, and the tree’s chances for a long, attractive, healthy and productive life are greatly reduced.
