Can Privacy Trees Be Planted in the Fall?

Privacy trees can add a beautiful screen around your property, blocking the view of your house and outdoor living areas. If you are looking for a sustainable option for privacy, trees like cedars, cypress and evergreens that are wide and densely branched can give you a natural fencing. However, to ensure your new privacy trees thrive, you want to ensure you plant them correctly. Fall is a great time to plant most privacy trees, if you do not wait too long.

Why Fall Is a Perfect Time for Planting Trees

During the winter months, many trees are dormant. They put less energy into foliage and work on enhancing their root system. This makes fall a wonderful time to add trees to your yard. The soil is still warm, yet it is not too hot. Small trees can be planted and begin the dormant period of winter in their new home. During the winter months, the roots will take hold and create a secure base for these young trees to grow.

Once the trees are planted, mulch should be added to protect and insulate the roots as they grow during the winter. By spring, a decent root system should be established, and the trees can begin their growth season. Many privacy trees are known for their quick growth – some grow 2-3 feet per year when given the right environment and care.

If you want to begin building a screen around your yard with privacy trees, fall is a great time to plant. Contact your local landscaping service to discuss the best privacy trees for your needs – many landscapers offer delivery and planting services as well.
