How to Plant a Tree
DIG HOLE: Hole should be twice the width of the root system or root ball.
Loosen the soil in bottom of hole to half again the depth of the hole; if the
soil is clay like, dig the hole larger and blend our Frugal Planting Soil with existing soil.
PREPARE PLANT OR TREE: Remove container if applies. If the roots are tightly
bound or circled, carefully spread them outward. If Bareroot, spread roots carefully.
DO NOT PLANT TOO DEEPLY Plant the rootball so that it is at slightly above the surrounding
soil level. If Bareroot, plant so that soil line matches original soil line on trunk.
TAMP SOIL around plant firmly around root system while adding water to eliminate air
pockets. When dormant, do not water again until leafing.
