Planting and Planting Location

No magic chants or mystical charts are required to ensure tree survival. Follow these simple steps and your tree will thank you!

Wider IS better! Dig a hole or even simply rototill or spade an area 2 to 5 times the width of the root ball.

The biggest cause of young tree and shrub failure is planting too deeply. Never dig the hole deeper than the depth of the root ball.

Always remove the twine or nylon and the burlap if a tree is balled and burlapped.

Extensive research has shown there is no need to add fertilizers, living organisms, spores, gels, organic products, etc. into the backfill soil. Simply use the loosened soil that came out of the planting hole.

Tree Watering

Tree watering is a key part of tree care and it is difficult to recommend an exact amount due to the varieties of climates. But a few rules of thumb will help guide you to water your trees properly.

Watering your Trees

Watering Newly Planted Trees:

For new trees, water immediately after you plant a tree.

Watering Trees During First Two Years:

During the first couple growing seasons, your newly planted tree is expending a lot of energy trying to get its roots established in the soil. Especially during the first few

Chewing Insects

Defoliating insects migrate to the foliage of a tree and feed on the leaves. Other chewing insects attack the fruit. Caterpillars and beetles make up the largest proportion of chewing insects. Generally, trees can bounce back from an attack of these defoliators, though repeat infestation will weaken a tree and can eventually kill it by starving it of energy.


Healthier trees are less likely to become infested, so maintaining the strength and vitality of your tree is an important prevention step. Once chewing insects are present, controlling movement up and down the stem with physical barriers can interrupt the lifecycles of many caterpillars. Insecticides can be used to kill the insects.

The winter is hard on trees, even those that are accustomed to cold climates. Stress caused by cold, drought, pests and branch breakage can take its toll. While you can't do much about the weather and icy temperatures, you can take steps to lessen their impact.


Keep Trees Clear of Snow

After a heavy snow, brave the cold and do your best to remove as much snow as possible from your trees' branches. Excess snow can cause branches to bend — which can cause damage — as well as break. Too much snow sometimes can even make the trees themselves bend and break. Remove snow using a broom or a similar tool to gently remove snow from tree branches. Use a broom in an upward, sweeping motion. You can also shake or tap tree trunks to remove snow, however, don't shake the branches — this may cause them to break. If the snow is frozen on the branch and will not brush off easily, it is best to let it melt naturally to avoid damage to the tree or shrub.
