You can help contribute to Waynesboro's urban forest by planting trees on your own property. When selecting a tree for your property, consider the space you have available and note the existence of any overhead utilities. You will want to select a tree with an appropriate mature size to avoid any future conflicts that may create maintenance issues. You might also want to select native species. Natives are best suited to serve our local animals, insects, and birds so they tend to offer greater ecosystem benefits. Trees come in all shapes and sizes so there is likely a tree out there to suit your requirements. To ensure your tree gets off to a good start be sure to plant it the proper way.
