Abstract Establishing trees and shrubs successfully takes careful planning and consideration. Not all trees or shrubs can be planted using the same methods. Special attention is needed for woody plant establishment. The choice of what to plant depends on the purpose of the planting, the site and soil conditions and the availability of the seed, seedlings, or cuttings. There are many factors to consider before, during and after tree and shrub planting. A successful establishment depends on considering all these factors.
