Before You Plant, Get the Facts
Here are some quick facts you should know before planting a tree. For more help planning where you plant, download our tree planting guide here.

  • Pick a tree that’s appropriate for your climate and space.
  • Know where overhead power lines are and plant at least 15 to 20 feet away; trees that grow taller than 40 feet should be planted more than 35 feet away.
  • Call 811 to check for underground utility lines at least two working days before you dig.
  • Once you know where underground natural gas lines are, plant at least 25 feet away. And for more safety tips about planting along a gas pipeline, click here.
