Video: How to Plant a Tree

What's the fix for a bland and boring front yard? The answer may be a leafy new addition to your landscaping design.


There’s perhaps no better way to show your appreciation for Mother Earth than to plant a tree. As we all know, trees absorb carbon dioxide from their environment, turning it into necessary oxygen for life on this planet. That said, there are many reasons to plant a tree in your yard, and some of them are aesthetic rather than purely altruistic. When planted strategically, trees can shade a sunny patio, add privacy to a front window, or simply boost curb appeal.
