Home Grown: Arbor Day Tree Planting.

Millions of conservation tree and shrub seedlings are planted each year across the U.S. for windbreaks, wildlife habitat, watershed protection, wood products and other conservation purposes. These seedlings are typically small, bare-root, 1 to 2 years old, and about 12 inches tall.

Spring is the best season to plant conservation trees, from the moment the frost is out of the ground until the weather starts to become hot and dry.

Ideally, seedlings should be planted the same day they are received from the nursery. But if planting must be postponed, choose cool, humid, cloudy days. Early morning or evening generally provides the best conditions for handling seedlings.
