Best management practices for successful landscape tree establishment in the urban environment depend on the design, site analysis, tree species selection, and proper planting and maintenance. All these factors are interrelated. Compromises to any of the BMPs are cumulative and affect other establishment factors. Successive compromises result in stress to the tree with potential death or failure of the planting. Each factor will be highlighted separately in this publication, but keep in mind that all factors are evaluated with attention to each other.
