How to care for a newly planted tree

with No Comments

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
