Tree Planting Tools

First, you’ll need a sturdy shovel or a spade depending on the size and species of the tree/shrub. For many trees, you’ll need tree stakes and ties to ensure proper growth in the early years of the tree’s life. For example, when planting pine trees, you’ll need to have tree stakes for the first few years. You’ll also need fresh topsoil to fill in the gaps around and above the bottom of the tree.
