Followed are some tips on planting tree

Spacing of trees
Trees serve a natural habitat, which provides support to wide variety of flora and fauna. They provide a sense of privacy and security to wildlife seeking shelter in the woods, apart from providing them with food and nutrients.
Direction of planting trees
Trees should be planted especially on the South and South- west direction of the building. This would give shade during summers. Large growing species are particularly desirable at rearwards.
When to plant trees :
Winter is the best time for planting deciduous trees as they are dormant at this period and hence less likely to suffer from damage. For evergreen and semi- deciduous trees rainy season is the best time for planting. During spring i.e. January and February. At this time all the factors required for tree growth are present. Thus, that is a good time for young saplings to be planted. For most species and most areas planting is carried out during monsoons. It is advisable to start planting work immediately after good shower and when the ground is well moistened to the depth of planting.
