1.) Purchase a healthy, vigorous tree. It’s the first step to a successful planting. Our stores are fully stocked with a range of trees now.
2. ) The planting hole should only be as deep as the root ball, and twice as wide.
3.) Prune any dead, broken, or twisted roots. Then, if wind, hot sun or aesthetic aspect are not factors, position your tree so that the majority of the branches are facing away from the afternoon sun. This will help the tree produce more foliage on the “barer side”.
4.) Staking the tree is the final step.
