Plant Your Tree in the Right LocationGibson, Rick (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-07)As long term investments, trees are expected to provide benefits for extended periods of time, usually decades. Trees planted in locations where they cannot survive or where they create problems rarely stay in place for any length of time. Trees experiencing shortened lives waste money, create hazards, and fail to perform their intended horticultural function.
