Although planting a tree sounds simple: dig a hole, put the tree in it, cover it with dirt, and let it grow; unfortunately, it’s not that easy. A healthy looking tree planted without a professional’s advice and expertise could cause problems. For example, a normal and vibrant tree can block vital sunlight needed to reach grass, shrubs, or other plants trying to grow beneath them. Also, a tree’s thick foliage can block air circulation inside the tree area. Combining this with low light can hinder leaf growth from within the tree, which creates and environment that promotes the growth of unwanted insects and fungi.

Planting a tree too deep can cause the tree to die, both immediately or 15-20 years down the road. The most common problem that ensues from incorrectly depth tree planting is trunk girdling roots. This can take years to kill the tree but will ultimately cause tree failure.
