Fall is finally here. Take advantage of the milder temperatures by planting trees and shrubs. The cooler weather allows their root systems to develop and get established so the tree or shrub can take full advantage of springtime growth. This more established root system is better prepared for next summer’s heat. When you plant trees and shrubs, it’s good for the environment and saves money. They increase property value, provide shade, reduce energy bills, and help keep the air clean.
