The performance of a landscape tree depends a great deal on how it is planted. Survival after initial transplanting, rate of growth and establishment, root development, and many other factors can be improved by proper planting techniques. Topics to consider when planting include the size and shape of the planting hole, whether to add soil amendments or fertilizer, pruning, staking, mulching, and watering.
