Selection, Planting and Care of Your Trees

Selection, Planting and Care of Your Trees

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Get ready for tree planting season! There are many types of trees, such as ornamental or fruit trees, understory or large shade trees, deciduous or evergreen trees, that are native to Central Texas and will thrive here. Matching a tree’s characteristics and growing requirements with your personal preferences is the first step to successfully adding or replacing trees that will increase the value of your property and bring you enjoyment for many years.

Please join Master Gardener Jerry Naiser at this free gardening seminar as he takes you through the steps of selecting, planting and caring for your trees. Planting the tree in the right season, ideally between October and April here in Central Texas, allows the tree’s roots to grow and get established before the heat of the summer is upon us.

Jerry will highlight proper steps in planting that help reduce transplant shock and root damage to the tree. Providing care immediately upon planting and regular preventive maintenance ensures the tree’s successful development and growth. Regular inspections, pruning, mulching, and fertilizing will catch problems early and provide the environment for a tree’s long and healthy
lifetime.

No registration is required. Attendance to the seminars is free and open to the public, however, a park entrance fee is required.

The Austin Area Garden Center in Zilker Botanical Garden is located at 2220 Barton Springs Rd., Austin 78746. Park entrance fees are $2 per adult, $1 per child (ages 3-12) or seniors (age 62 & over), and $3 for non-Austin residents. Cash or check accepted.
