As long as the ground is not frozen, plant those trees you have been wanting, especially with this prolonged warm weather we are having. The nurseries have some great buys. They want to reduce their stock prior to the winter, since they are winding down for the season. Also, it is important to water (keep the soil moist) during these dry periods. The best way to preserve that moisture is to “mulch” with wood chips and the leaves you have raked up.
