Module 8: Planting Procedures for Woody Ornamentals

This training begins by emphasizing the importance of carefully handling and transporting trees and shrubs from the shop or nursery to the job site. Once at the planting site, they are placed in the shade and watered before transplanting. Workers thoroughly prepare the soil, then demonstrate the proper procedure for planting both container-grown and balled-and-burlapped plants. Installing guy wires on a tree, mulching and watering complete the planting process. Filmed with All good Outdoors, Alpharetta, Ga.
