||Our container growing process has many advantages over the traditional ball-and-burlap method of growing healthy trees. One of the advantages is the ease of transporting, storing and planting a container-grown tree versus a ball-and-burlap tree. Once the trees have arrived at your home, simply water them in their container until you are ready to plant.
1.) When you are ready to plant, dig a hole slightly larger than the diameter of the container and slightly deeper than the height of the container.
2.) Remove the tree from the container and place the tree in the hole.
3.) Fill in the sides of the hole with your native soil and cover the top of the ground line with about 1 inch of your native soil. This will help retain moisture around the now buried roots of the tree.
If the trees are close enough to a source of water, water the tree for the first season. Soon after planting the tree will start to root-out into the native soil. Top growth will resume next spring. By then your new tree is firmly established and will grow rapidly!
