Tree Planting Guidelines

Prior to planting, amend your soil with organic matter to help the roots get established. Remove the plant from the container and gently tease the roots apart and spread them in your planting area.

Make sure you install the plant no deeper than it was in the container. Water thoroughly after planting.

Check daily for watering needs and water only when the soil is dry to the touch one inch below the surface. A light application of mulch, about one to two inches, will help control weeds and keep the soil moist.

Make certain the garden area drains well as the plant roots may rot or become diseased or insect ridden.
