It’s a pretty basic eco-fact that planting a tree is one of the best ways to give back to the Earth and beautify your property. But trees can be expensive, and nothing is worse than a living investment that ends up dying in the first year you plant it. When buying trees, ask your local nursery if they have any zero-risk guarantees. Many national retail chains and local stores will replace your tree for free if it dies in the first year. Save your receipt and take a photo of the dead specimen if it doesn’t work out.
