Planting A Tree – MDC Virtual Program

Spring is a popular time to do some landscaping, including planting or transplanting a tree or shrub in your yard.  The Missouri Department of Conservation offers some tips on finding the right tree for the right place.

MDC will host a virtual tree-planting workshop, March 11th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

When first considering planting a tree, know how big it will get.  With that in mind, select your ideal spot, then – look up – are there any utility lines above that spot?  If so, you may need to plant elsewhere.  Look Down – ok, you may need some help, but are there buried utilities; phone, electric, cable tv, Internet, gas, water or sewer, that are beneath the ground.  Call for a utility location.

The MDC will cover topics that include tree selection, location, and the planting of the tree.  To attend the virtual program, register for the program by emailing Make sure you indicate the e-mail is for the Tree Selection and Planting program. The link for the program will be e-mailed to the participant one day ahead of the event.
