Our staff is here to help you out and make your life easy.
When your tree is installed a member of our staff will water the tree and will also completely soak the root ball so that there are no air pockets in the soil that you are putting it in. The day after the tree is planted, you want to water it again and you need to do that specifically with the slow trickle method. This means that you are going to take a hose to the tree and you are going to allow that to water the plant for 45 minutes. You are not going to use the hose for it, that is something that you don’t want to do. Make sure that every time that you water your tree you use this method, this is the best way and is really going to help you out. By using this watering technique, you will have trees that get what they need and you are also going to get trees that don’t have to deal with the droughts as poorly as the other trees that may not have been watered in this method. Not watering properly is the best way to kill a tree off in the first year.
