Planting And Care



  • Dig out an area for the tree that is about 3 or 4 times the diameter of the container or rootball and the same depth as the container or rootball.
  • Use a pitchfork or shovel to scarify the sides of the hole.
  • If container-grown, lay the tree on its side and remove the container. Loosen the roots around the edges without breaking up the root ball too much.
  • Position tree in center of hole so that the best side faces forward. You are ready to begin filling in with soil.
  • If planting a balled and burlaped tree, position it in hole so that the best side faces forward.
  • Untie or remove nails from burlap at top of ball and pull burlap back, so it does not stick out of hole when soil is replaced.
  • Create a water ring around the outer edge of the hole.
  • Not only will this conseve water, but will direct moisture to perimeter roots, encouraging outer growth.
  • Once tree is established, water ring may be leveled.
  • Studies show that mulched trees grow faster than those unmulched, so add a 3 inch layer of pinestraw, compost, or pulverized bark over backfilled area.
  • Remove any damaged limbs.
