Tree Planting

While tree planting can be different depending on the tree, here are a few general tips.

The biggest mistake I see happening all the time is people digging a hole that is too deep and too narrow.

If the hole is too deep, the roots don't have enough oxygen to grow, and if the hole is too narrow, the roots won't be able to expand or properly anchor the tree.

As a rule, transplanted trees should not be put in holes deeper then what they were grown in. The width of the whole on average should be at least 3 times the size of the root ball.

The best time to plant, plants is the temperatures are moderate, meaning not too cold and not too hot. Rainfall is also good for newly planted trees.

Spring and Autumn are usually good seasons to plant in.
