How to care for a newly planted tree

Fertilizing generally is not necessary until the tree begins recovering from the shock of transplanting and establishes itself in its new home. This usually takes at least a year to occur, but in some instances, the tree may need some fertilization. Some practical guidelines for newly planted trees:

  • Mulching is highly beneficial to your newly planted tree
  • Watering is key and must be done properly
  • Pruning of newly and recently planted trees is recommended but must be done properly and according to standards
  • Staking, guying and using tree wraps may or may not be needed, depending on the planting site and the tree selected
