Seedling tree PLANTING instructions
Below are some articles on successful seedling planting.
We have also included a link with great pictorial instructions to follow as well.
"Many times the trees get planted too deep and after about 5 years we see a lot of these trees die. It needs to be known that it is much better for the top root to be at ground level or above. If it is planted below ground level, often people end up mulching around trees and this root ends up too deep and the water will cause the crown of the tree to rot and then the tree dies. I see this all the time. Daylight for the top root is my recommendation."
