Tree & Shrubs



The biggest mistake we encounter when looking at newly planted trees is that they were planted too deep in the ground!


In this area of the country when you dig your planting hole, it should be half again the width of the ball of earth and no deeper than the ball of earth.


When the plant is placed in the hole, the top of the ball should be a little above your ground level. Mix a little soil conditioner with the existing dirt and fill in the hole. Then add your mulch making sure not to pile it around the trunk of the tree.


Happy Planting!
