-Dig a hole 2-3 times the root ball width and same depth as root ball.
-Carefully remove plastic pot and cut through any circling roots.
-Position the root ball in the center of the hole and ensure the tree is standing straight. If necessary, tip the root ball to adjust the tree.
-Partially backfill the hole with loamy soil, tamp the soil with your heel to remove air pockets, water to settle the soil and finish backfilling around the root ball with good soil. Avoid using heavy clay-based soil.

-Applying mulch will help help retain moisture and reduce weeds.
