Benefits Of Planting Trees Native To Your Region

There are so many great reasons to plant a native tree. They don’t just benefit the wildlife we share space with, but native trees can help us humans too. Here’s how:

  • Help support your local ecosystem.
  • Native trees are well-adapted to the local climate, which means they’ll have the best chance at survival.
  • While non-native trees might not do well up against local pests, native trees often don’t have as many pest problems.

You don’t want to make the common mistake of planting your tree too deep.
