What’s The Best Time To Plant A Tree

Green Things - Trees - Post to FTS 11-19-2023

We recommend planting new trees in late winter to early spring, or from February to May, when Tucson typically enjoys moderate weather. This is the perfect time of year for a sensitive new sapling to establish itself and dig its roots into the soil before the weather warms up.  Trees that are hardy and tolerant to the Tucson heat are of course Mesquite and Palo Verde, however there are many other species that do well in our heat.  Take a look at a “previous post” of ours that will guide you on selection and site placement.  You can also give the folks and “Green Things” a call, their selection is endless.  Happy planting!
