Caring for Your Live Tree if Bought as a Christmas Tree

To greatly increase your tree's life expectancy, follow these guidelines:

1.  Water the root ball every three days until you are ready to bring the tree inside.  Water from the top.  Do not soak the root ball in water or it may fall apart when you lift the tree.

2.  We suggest keeping the tree indoors for no more than 10 days; 7 days is better.  If you keep it inside longer, it may break dormancy and die when it is taken back to the cold.

3. Place the root ball in a large tub so you can water without wetting the floor.

4.  We recommend using small, twinkle type lights instead of larger hotter lights.  The tree will not dry out as fast!

 

Planting Your Tree

 


1. Dig a hole a bit larger than the root ball with a slight narrower taper to the bottom of the hole.

2.  Place a thin layer of topsoil or peat moss at the bottom of the hole.  Do not put fertilizer in the hole.  This will burn developing roots.

3.  Place the tree including the wire basket and burlap in the hole.  Check for proper depth.  The top of the root ball should be 1-2 inches below existing ground level. Do not plant too deep, this will cause the tree to drown.

4.  Place 1/3 of the soil around the root ball.  Now, cut the twine around the top of the wire basket and fold the basket and burlap down.

5.  Check the tree for straightness and finish filling the hole with soil.  Be sure to tamp soil down to achieve good soil to rootball contact.  Place 1-2 inches of soil on top of the root ball and finish by making a saucer around the tree by placing soil higher around the outer edge of the hole.

6.  Throughly water the tree and mulch if you prefer.

7.  Note: Water your new tree(s) several times weekly during dry periods until well established.  This could take one to two years.

8.  Now enjoy your new tree(s) and remember trees are an environmentally sound, renewable resource that helps replenish the oxygen in our air, protect our watershed, and provide cover for birds and wildlife.
