Embrace the Green: Tree Planting Season is Upon Us

Now is the time to hand select your trees.

As winter thaws and the first whispers of spring fill the air, it’s time to turn our attention to one of nature’s most vibrant rituals: tree planting season. With the promise of warmer weather, rain and longer days ahead, it is time to gear up and embark on the noble task of adding to our planet’s green canopy.

In many regions, including our own, the tree planting season typically kicks off in March and extends through May. During this time, nurseries come alive with activity, and Blondie’s is at the forefront, supporting longstanding partnerships that ensure top-notch quality. Navigating through our network of growers, we meticulously tag premium specimens, ready to be delivered to our valued clients.

One common practice during this season is the planting of 2.5-3” caliper trees. These are trees with a caliper measuring approximately 2.5 to 3 inches at the trunk’s widest point, which is typically 12” above the root flare. Such trees often strike a balance between being substantial enough to make an immediate visual impact and young enough to adapt well to transplantation.

As we approach this exciting time of year, it’s important for those interested in participating to plan ahead. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to enhance your property, a property management or hospitality group looking to enrich shared amenities, an organization aiming to beautify public space, or a design firm drawing up plans, now is the perfect moment to start making arrangements.

By planning in the early spring, you can ensure that you have access to the widest selection of trees possible, secure the specimens that best suit your needs and ensure they are reserved for your specific project.

So whether if you’ve been dreaming of adding shade to your backyard, creating a welcoming green space for your guests or tenants, or dedicated to amplifying the beneficial impact trees, there’s no better time to act than now.

As we anticipate the arrival of spring, let’s harness the power of nature to enrich our surroundings, improve air quality,  and create vibrant ecosystems that sustain life for generations to come. Remember, the time to plant trees is now, so don’t delay.
