OK to mount flat-screen TV on plywood
The same screws you use to mount the TV to studs will suffice for mounting the TV to 1/2 inch or thicker plywood, except that the smooth part of the screw nearest the head must not go so far in as to touch the plywood.
For thinner plywood use more of the same kind of screw (three for every two originally called for; round up), or use Molly bolts or use bolts with washers behind as suggested above. The extra screw for each grouping should be as high up (vertically) as possible.
Now you need to know what the plywood is attached to so the whole wall doesn't come down.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
