As the ground is thawing out from The Winter That Would Not End, even those of us that may dread the coming busyness of the spring season are chomping at the bit to get out there and do something. Anything.

One of the many things that spring is good for is planting trees. Fall can be a good time too and many will debate which is the best time, but as with perennials, I prefer spring. This allows the plant plenty of time to become established before winter.

No matter when you plant a tree, there are some things to remember. And as I go about my business, I see one huge mistake being made over and over again that costs many a tree its life - the mulch volcano.
