How To Plant And Care For Your Tree

Dig:

Dig your hole approximately 4” larger than your tree ball.
*Do not cut burlap, string, or basket off of your tree. All of our materials are biodegradable and these things help to stabilize your tree in the beginning. *If your tree is tied with nylon string you do need to remove it from the tree.

Plant:

Roll your tree into the hole and make sure it sits about 1-2”, from the top of the tree ball, above the ground.

Fill:

Push dirt back into the rest of the hole.
*Make sure you chop the dirt up as you put it back in to avoid any air pockets in the dirt.

Water:

Then you will need to water your tree. Water by placing your hose around the rootball where you chopped the dirt. Put it on as slow of a drip as you can. Let it sit there and run until the water begins to bubble up.

Mulch:

Place mulch 2-3” in depth around your tree to finish off the process.
*Be sure to not put any mulch on the trunk of the tree.

Long Term:
