NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- With the state celebrating Arbor Day on Friday, a specialist with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture suggests being careful in choosing the right trees to plant.
Kyle Holmberg, a horticulture marketing specialist, says tree planters should compare the available spaces with the eventual sizes of the trees. Also to be kept in mind are places where fast-growing trees are needed and areas of a lawn that are always shaded.
Holmberg recommends doing a quick overview of property conditions, then research the Internet for the proper varieties. The next step is visiting retail nurseries or garden centers for expert advice.
