Planting Instructions

Plant 20-25 ft apart. Dig the hole twice as big around as the container it’s in, but no deeper. Remove the tree and roots from the container. Using a utility knife, cut at least 3 vertical cuts from the bottom of the root ball to the top as well as a x shaped cut on the bottom. Plant the tree and use loose soil to fill in the area around the tree. Step the tree in to insure its set good and then water.
