You still have some time left if you are looking to plant a few trees in your Kansas City area landscape; however, remember that you can not plant them too deep. It’s best if you are able to see some of the root flaring at the top of the soil. Don’t worry if the flare on your new tree is buried, simply remove the soil above the flare before you plant it.
Need a few ideas about what trees to plant? Here are 3 plants that would be great for your Kansas City area landscape.
