  • Planting
  • Fencing
  • Water bucket w/slow release hose.  We suggest filling water bucket in the morning and water in the evening.. letting chlorine escape and warms the water, which is better for the tree

  • Fertilizer- a slow release tablet that gives the tree everything it will need for the first 2 years
  • Mulch- Keeps the moisture in, keeps summer soil temps lower, and helps prevent root freeze damage in the winter
  • Weed inhibitor- uncontrolled grass and weeds compete for moisture and nutrients
