Evergreen trees are an ideal way to add winter interest to the garden. These trees are also useful as background plantings and provide shelter for wildlife. To plant evergreen trees, you should:
1. Look for a location that has well drained soil. These trees do not live long and healthy lives in damp soil.
2. Check the soil's pH. Most evergreens prefer acidic soil.
3. Consider whether planting your tree in the location you choose will cast too much shade on other areas of the garden when the evergreen is mature.
