Planting with the 'Swedish method'

Planting with the ‘Swedish method’

Montpelier city workers create a new planting area for a honey locust tree on Main Street in downtown Montpelier on Wednesday. The city is experimenting with a new urban tree planting technique developed in Sweden that will support the sidewalk, provide soil layers for tree roots and soak up storm water. Montpelier is one of the first cities in the nation to try the Swedish method and plans to plant four new trees on Main Street in the coming days.
