Check With Your Extension Service When Planting Trees

In trying to decide about planting new trees and what kind, go to your state's extension service. Google (mine) "Minnesota extension service", find gardens, then trees and it will tell you what trees are the native species you should plant for your area as well as the "do not plant" versions, due to disease that can happen. Gardening/seed/trees catalogues cannot be that specific in their information when sending them to the general public. You just get the zone number it is rated for.

This is excellent advice. Much of the sidewalk on a main thoroughfare where I live is being heaved out of the ground by the roots of young Cercis canadensis (redbud) trees. Now, I see newly planted redbud trees where new roads and sidewalk have been laid. It's a shame. These walks are unsafe for pedestrians and the taxpayers will eventually have to pay to have the walks repaired.

Any ag agent would have advised against planting these trees in close proximity to sidewalks. All it took was a call. Thank you.
