Fill the hole half full of water. Remove tree from pot and gently fluff roots. This stimulates the roots and promotes growth. Swish tree in water to allow loose dirt on bottom of root ball to fall in hole. Fill in with soil, and as you do pull up on the tree so tap root is straight. Ensure all air pockets are filled in, by packing the dirt down on mound. Water it in well. CARE FOR YOUR TREE: Water the tree at least 3 times a week for the first two weeks, then gradually back off to twice a week. Water just enough to moisten the ground, you do not want to over saturate the ground. Do not over water the tree as this will promote root rot and damage the roots.

Always place the fertilizer along the drip line. INSECTICIDES: There are insecticidal soaps that deter insects and keep tree free of sooty mold that will darken leaves. We also recommend fish emulsion sprayed on
